    I wonder how rapidly our negotiations played out. Two weeks ago it was reported that, despite declining his option, the Twins wanted to re-sign Baker, and that they were discussing a possible new contract.


    I heard you were looking for me.

    Buckshot approach
    I wouldn't be surprised if they sign more starters than spots available this off season

    I'll go under. He makes 17 great starts. 17-0, 0.42 ERA, and we trade him for David Price 1 for 1. Boom.

    That's what they call a trick question if he pitches well he won't make 20 starts with the CUBS, If he gets hurt he won't pich 20 games for the cubs, if he sucks he without an injury he still may not pitch 20 games with the cubs because of who he is.

    Oh yeah, good point. I actually thing Vizciano would be a guy the might keep in the minors and then after the trade deadline would get some time in the rotation.

    I'm just disappointed this is only a 1 year deal. I'd like to have seen a 2 year deal with a team option for a 3rd that vests with a certain number of IPs. I think its very good value, but a 1 year deal limits the rewards. I realize it also limits the risk as well, but Baker is a guy I really like moving forward.

    yeah, or even a 1 year deal with a 2nd year option.

    It's probably tough to get a 1 year deal with team option for a 2nd year though. If he has a great year he loses money in the 2nd year, and if he has a bad year he didn't get any security for the future. That's why I suggested 2 years with a 3rd year option. That guaranteed 2nd year gives a little more security over a 1 year deal.

    Blue Jays just ****ed themselves unless they got a ton of cash from Miami.

    The Blue Jays are going to win a lot of baseball games. That's kind of the point, though many want to forget that.

    No, no. The point is that you can only win if you strip down your entire roster, build slowly by acquiring a bunch of prospects that may or may not work out, then supplement them IF they work out by signing average FA plug-and-play pieces.
