    Baker anyone? Twins decline his 9mil

    I'm a bit surprised but Scott Baker is officially a FA and a guy that might fit quite nicely in our rotation.  Scott gives up a few long balls but I like his WHIP and other stats.

    In response to pinstripezac's comment:

    greetings craze

    I'm guessing

    those low risk high reward moves ...............sure are addicting ;-)

    unless he will take a minor league contract I'd pass

    actually I think it would be best to wait a yr

     

     



    FWIW it sounds like the twins are still in play

    Baker and Twins GM Terry Ryan have expressed mutual interest in Baker returning to the Twins, so it seems that terms will be the biggest question. Baker was set to undergo tendon surgery in early April, and woke up to find out the surgery was season-ending Tommy John surgery. While his injury history means the Twins are unlikely to offer Baker big money up front, a more modest salary with significant bonuses and incentives for performance is a more realistic offer. Drafted by the Twins in 2003, it’s the only organization the pitcher has known, and he may appreciate the comfort of the familiar as he tests out his post-surgery arm.

    A warm hello right back at you zac.  I think Baker may be a good risk, certainly more so than some of the ones from our past like Penny, Glavine, Cook and company.
