I think Smoak is an interesting piece, we're definitely in rebuilding mode. Maybe a change of scenery would help some... And while I like Capps and Pryor quite a bit, I think the Twins would be focusing on starting pitching, we only have Worley and Diamond that are capable starters at the moment. Gibson needs 2 months of AAA most likely and May needs a year, Meyer needs a year and a half of AA/AAA.
Ya there's a lot of free agent pitchers, but it doesn't sound like the Twins are willing to pay the inflated prices so it looks like they are looking to trades. Would Erasmo Ramirez and Smoak be too much? Paxton, Smoak, and Brad Miller are the 3 most intriguing names from Seattle that I think could be possibilities...
well damn...Armstrong's point about not having exchanged figures with Hamilton yet is largely semantics, writes Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times, because they've talked enough to hammer out a deal quickly. As it stands now, Hamilton's agent is waiting for Zack Greinke to sign, because the Rangers are unlikely to sign both.
im surprised we have gotten that far with him honestly. i felt he didnt want to have anything to do with us
what is frustrating is the hand TX is playing with, in on greinke w/ mutual interest, upperhand with hamilton, and specs to get upton.
i wish hamilton would stick it to TX and sign with us and start a domino affect to get a couple other nice players. than dodgers land greinke and philly get upton.
Well, lets hope Greinke goes to TExas and Hamilton heads here and blows Greinke up every time they face each other.
Ken rosenthal reported the m's offered 3 years 20-25 million a year. Alot cheaper then I anticipated.
He will get more then this when all is said and done and 1-2 more years.The Mariners have discussed three-year deals with Hamilton in range of $20MM to $25MM per season, a source tells Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter).
