    That sucks Devin. Hopefully you guys can work it out.

    I got a nice package in from Andy.

    It was a 2005 Topps Chrome auto, a 2005 Bowman Chrome x-fractor, and a 2005 Bowman Chrome

    Anybody remember what Carew's restrictions were last year?
    For Twinsfest I am going go have a really light load this year, unless I get consignments for people once the schedule comes out. Have a Mauer/Morneau Panoramic, and maybe a Carew photo file 16.

    I know he didn't SS last year. Other than that, I dunno.

    I am hoping to get Mauer this year on a 16x20 of a puck drop in 2009. Then I have to find Koivu and Wheeler to sign it as well.

    Scott Baker signs with the Cubs. I feel like it was assumed that he would re-sign with us to try and regain his form, but now this opens up another spot in our pathetic rotation. I really hope Terry Ryan has something up his sleeve to bring in some actual MLB pitchers.

    It was a 9.25 million club option. If Im the GM, I would have declined that option too.

    Everybody knew the option was going to be declined, but I like many others thought he would re-sign for cheaper

    Exactly, the option is not being talked about. I thought it was assumed we'd move him, and we did. For nine and a quarter million bucks, we couldn't chance and hope he'd be healthy and effective this year. Smart move, and really the only choice we had.

    As to re-signing for cheaper, I have to think the club doesn't want to deal with any more injury liabilities going forward. We've been beat up for a couple years now, and the only people more frustrated then the fans are those in the front office.

    And Twins! (The Twins talk and pick-up thread).

    The option was declined quite a long time ago. Rumors were that we were interested in bringing him back for less money + incentives which I would have been ok with.

    This isn't Baker related, but I got an idea.

    I was at a sports store yesterday and I noticed they were selling MSHSL baseballs (the high school equivalent to an OMLB). I was thinking that for a different project, I could buy up a few, and have Minnesota-born players sign and inscribe them with the high school they played at.

    A dozen is $60, so I would assume each baseball is $5 each.

    Nice Chris!

    I was able to strike a deal for the Perkins had I posted about a while back. I will be getting it in this next week, hopefully.
