He better not accept, as Hardy is 10x the player.

Apparently, they do want to keep him.

I am not joking. It’s all part of the master plan.

He’s a type A. I think the Twins will offer, and I think Guerrier will be crazy to turn it down, but he will. Then he’ll find that the market for a marginally good middle reliever with a type A designation really ISN’T very good, and re-sign with the Twins for 2 years and $6-$7M.

Any time the Twins instead have had a Shortstop with good range, arm, fielding instincts, and a little pop in his bat, the Twins went exactly nowhere.

….oh, wait.

I think a heathly Hardy (if he can stay healthy in 2011) is a great asset. His defense is superb and his hitting is above average at the SS position. The place that speed should be added is in the outfield. Span is more of a corner outfielder to me, I just don’t know if you can take Cuddyer and Youngs bat out of the lineup as the Twins are pretty short on right handed power hitters. I am all for a little more speed in the lineup, I just don’t think the Twins are looking in the right places to insert it.

I’ve never seen such a stupid statement (your first sentence) combined with such an intelligent one (your last sentence).

Bracvo.

He didn’t point out that the OF has 5 players already. He didn’t really address any details at all, just pushed the Twins’ lines out there with no analysis.
