        7/120 is a lot of money. Not a significantly higher average annual value than Bay signed for, though, for what it's worth.

          Especially given the fact that where else was Holliday going to go?

            I want to say its a Mets like move by the Cardinals: they basically bid against themselves.

              That's a lot of money to drop a fly ball.

                I suspect he'll make up for that though.

                      Considering the lack of free agent talent that the Twins could remotely afford, it's not surprising. Also, they'll need to break the bank to resign Mauer next winter.

                      That and the Pohlad family is not known for being free spenders.

                        Sets the stage for re-signing Pujols perhaps. I can't even imagine what they're going to have to pay him. After Holliday and Pujols, they won't be able to afford anything else.

                          Considering what two teams in particular will be willing to pay him, the Twins may have to rob a bank, I'm thinking a Federal Reserve bank, to pay Mauer.

                            Both sides are claiming that a deal should get done this winter, before those 2 goddamm teams get their chance. Well, according to the ****ty local paper.

                              They picked up Condrey and retained Cabrera and Pavano...they have JJ Hardy now to play 3rd base...

                              Condrey is a decent reliever who knows how to win. Kindof hoping the Cubs would have taken a run at him.

                              The rest... well...

                                I'm pretty sure the rise in pink JJ Hardy t-shirt sales will allow the Twins to re-sign Mauer. I wouldn't underestimate his value.
