Check out the Travis Talks Minnesota Sports podcast tonight at 10:00 central time. Tonight his guest will be Chris Gates of The Daily Norseman, a Vikings blog. They’ll talk about the Vikings, and later in the show, there will be Twins, Wolves and Gophers talk too. Check it out.
Scott Boras is amazing! The market for free agents that aren’t the top notch free agents has been down, and yet, Boras got a terrific contract for Adrian Beltre. The Boston Red Sox will pay him $9 million in 2010. If he proves himself healthy and very good, he can become a free agent after the season. If he has another bad year, or gets hurt again, he can pick up his $5 million player option for 2011.
With Beltre now off the market, how long before the Twins announce that they have acquired Mike Lowell and $9 million? Who would the Twins need to trade in such a deal? Or, where does Lowell end up?
Josh Johnson posted his choice for the Twins #47 Prospect. Note that he will be counting down one each day until he reaches his top prospect.
