    Re: Talking Baseball: The Hot Stove League Thread

    The Angels way overpaid for Hunter. He's still a great player, but he's not going to be worth over 10 million a year for the length of that contract. But hey, if you can find someone to give you that kind of money, more power to ya.

    I know Twins fans in Minnesota are all pissed off, but I actually don't see it as terrible. I would have loved for Torii to be in the opening day lineup at the new ballpark, but wasn't meant to be. It's going to be a newer era for the Twins, hopefully they can keeper Mauer and Morneau happy and we rob someone when we trade Santana this winter. Francisco Liriano should be back this year and we have lots of talent, we just need a few more bats, and I have feeling we'll be getting that via Johan's eventual trade.

    So was the trade for Garland a salary dump to clear budget room for Hunter? Does anyone know the respective salaries?

    Ah man, that's sad. I may have heard wrong, but didn't he have some sort of medical issue? I don't know.

    And the Cincinnati Reds have signed Francisco Cordova from the Brewers according to ESPN.com and FoxSports.com, pending the physical passing.

    Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Yankees and Twins are in trade talks for Johan Santana nasty lefty and former cy young winner. If they Yankees can pull it off that would be a true ace. SUCK!!!

    The Twins have been busy lately. With the Santana talks plus there's a rumor that Minnesota would send Jason Bartlett, Matt Garza, and Juan Rincon to the Rays for Delmon Young and two other players.

    This would be a good trade for both teams in my opinion. Minnesota needs another OF and Young has talent (even with some issues off the field).

    The Rays also unveiled their new waterfront stadium. It kinda reminds me of old Olympic Stadium in Montreal with the roof cables and such.

    Here's a link to some renderings:

    They really like the whole tilted stadium thing there huh? Looks like a great location, the cables and things seem a bit much though.

    Also, very excited about Delmon Young being a Twin soon. The Twins would also get SS Brendan Harris and OF Jason Pridie. Pridie was with the Twins in spring training of 2006 as a Rule 5 pick, but since they didn't keep him on the 25 man roster, they had to let him go, so they've liked him for awhile.

    It's official. The Twins pick up Delmon Young from Tampa for Matt Garza in a six-player deal.

    Kind of surprising that the Rays were willing to trade Young, but they add depth to the rotation with Garza and a good shortstop in Bartlett. Good trade for both teams.

    Re: Talking Baseball: The Hot Stove League Thread

    Garza won't be better than a No. 2 starter and even then he's going to work to get to that point, Bartlett isn't as good as many seem to think he is based on his numbers.

    If Young can reach his potential at all, the Twins got a steal.

    Apparently the Red Sox are in the Santana race. How surprising is that *sarcasm*.

    Agreed Anders. Why are so many top notch prospects problems? Young was the top rated prospect just a year ago. Sad that a team that needs great young players has to trade someone based on attitude.
