For some reason, in this folder I have no problem with 200, but the others I start with them getting in the 90-125

Well don't worry. You're bound to come with something funny before another 200 pages pass.

I don't think there is a new age stat in existence that would measure that as funny.

I know. I was saying more to save Matt from having that hideous attempt at humor from lasting on the board for the next few months..

Hughes Twins MVP

Phil Hughes was a Yankee castoff last December, allowed to walk away after a 4-14 season, but the Twins believed he was better than that. Turns out, he was.

Hughes, a free agent signee last December, has been elected the 54th winner of the Calvin Griffith Award as Twins’ Most Valuable Player, the team announced on Thursday. Hughes is the sixth pitcher to earn the overall MVP honor in a vote of the Twin Cities chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America.

After winning 16 games, posting a 3.78 ERA, and walking only 16 batters, Hughes was also named the team’s Pitcher of the Year.

Hughes wasn’t the only pitcher honored by the local BBWAA, however. Pat Neshek, a Park Center graduate with the St. Louis Cardinals, was voted the winner of the Dick Seibert Award as the best major-league player from the Upper Midwest.

For his .319-with-20-steals season, Danny Santana was voted Twins rookie of the year, while shortstop Eduardo Escobar was honored as the most improved Twin. Second baseman Brian Dozier was selected the defensive player of the year, and catcher Kurt Suzuki was chosen for the Bob Allison Award for outstanding leadership.

The Mike Augustin Award winner was Ron Gardenhire, fired earlier this month as Twins manager. He was elected by BBWAA members for his cooperation with the media.

Those award winners, along with minor-league players of the year Kennys Vargas and J.O. Berrios, and community-service award winner Brian Duensing, will be honored at the annual Diamond Awards at Target Field on Jan. 22, 2015.

For the Upcoming season, I propose the Talkvies.

The Ron Gardenhire Award will go to the stupidest hot head.

The Terry Ryan Award will go to the guy who relies most on outdated data and is consistently wrong

The Joe Mauer award will go the poster who used to be solid, but doesn't do anything anymore.

The JJ Hardy award will go to the Most under appreciated poster

The Kent Hrbek Award will go the poster that eats the most, drinks the most, and has the most fun, while being steady in production.

Payroll...

IMO, the Twins should be expected to have a payroll in the upper half of the league. The 15th highest payroll last year was Baltimore at $107 million. There is no reason the Twins shouldn't be expected to have a payroll that high. That means, with such a young team, they SHOULD be pursuing a freaking ACE this year. They have enough cheap talent to afford a TOP SP along with a quality arm for the bullpen.

TOP SP
Hughes
Nolasco
Gibson
Meyer/May/Milone

2013 payroll was $86 million, but if you take away Willingham, Correia, Pelfrey, Burton, and Kubel it's around $63 million. They could easily spend $20-25 million on the ACE and quality bullpen arm this offseason. Hopefully they will pursue Scherzer/Shields/Lester with the knowledge that they are in a position to afford such a contract.

The "Twins Way" of finding a bargain bin SP means they go into next season with a payroll around $75 million. Totally unacceptable.

Offer up 5 years and $100 for someone and let the chips fall where they may.

Oh, and move Mauer to LF already.

Outside of Mauer, the roster is pretty cheap and young.
Personally I'd like to see two of the three you mentioned along with
Nolasco, Hughes, and Gibson.
Bring in the young bats and you've got something.
If the young bats take longer, you take the ACE and deal him for young arms.

Well, if it makes you guys feel better...I'm sure TR will report that the Twins are "in on" Lester/Shields/Scherzer...
