Winter meetings deals for ex-Twins

Recommended Posts

The Tigers have reached agreement with free-agent shortstop Adam Everett, according to a major-league source.

The one-year deal will be worth approximately $1 million, plus incentives, and is pending a physical.

Detroit also made official its deal with the Rangers to acquire catcher Gerald Laird, meaning the Tigers have addressed their catcher and shortstop needs in the span of about 24 hours.

Everett hit .213 in 48 games for the Twins last season. He spent seven seasons with the Astros prior to his stint in Minnesota.

Scraping the bottom of the ol' barrel. Guess they looked at our payroll, then theirs and realized money doesn't buy championships. Of course talent does, too bad they haven't figured that one out yet and are signing has beens. Royals are making some decent deals thus far in the offseason, they will be a good team in a few years, they just have to keep their pitching in line. Grienke is an animal- when the voices in his head tell him to be wink

Casey Blake will not be a Twin. The Twins do not want to give Blake a 3rd year on a new deal.

A.J. Burnett will be with the Braves or Yankees. Tejada or Wiggington could be dealt. Milton Bradley might go to the Cubs and Raul Ibanez might go to the Braves.

LAS VEGAS -- The Brewers closed the deal with free-agent third baseman Mike Lamb on Tuesday morning, inking the veteran to a one-year contract that had been in the works for several days.

Lamb, 33, finished the 2007 regular season with Milwaukee after he was released by the Twins five months into a two-year, $6.6 million contract. The Brewers are believed to have committed something close to the league minimum of $400,000 for Lamb, and the Twins will be on the hook for the rest of the $3 million they guaranteed him for 2009.

The Brewers are seeking left-handed bats this offseason and they liked what they had in Lamb, who hit .273 (3-for-11) in his brief stint with the Brewers and was not eligible for the postseason roster because Milwaukee didn't acquire him until Sept. 5. He's likely to split time at third base in 2009 with right-handed hitter Bill Hall, though Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said Monday that prospect Mat Gamel -- another left-handed hitter -- will also get a chance to win playing time.

Lamb is a .277 hitter in parts of nine seasons with the Rangers, Astros, Twins and Brewers, and his best years were in Houston, including a 14-homer, 58-RBI 2004 season and a 2006 in which he batted a career-high .307. Melvin was the Rangers' GM when Texas took Lamb in the seventh round of the 1997 First-Year Player Draft.

Hey,

Good news as long as he is out of the American League, for both the Twinks and my beloved Pale Hose.

Dodgeras signed both Casey Blake and Mark Loretta. They gave Blake the 3rd year. 3yrs 17mil. Twins offered 2yrs 14mil.

Rafael Furcal may go to the Royals, A's, Dodgers, or Blue Jays

Royals also talking about Orlando Cabrera

Kerry Wood is either going to the Indians or Rangers for 2yr 14mil.

J.J. Putz for Prince Fielder trade is in the works.

Rays might want Delmon Young back from the Twins in a three team trade that involved Colorado and Garret Atkins going to the Twins while the Rockies get Andy Sonnastine and Edwin Jackson from the Rays.

J.J. Putz for Prince Fielder trade is in the works.

I would stay away from Putz if I were any GM in the Majors. He was on my fantasy team and had some bad arm issues most of the season. When he was somewhat healthy he got rocked. Brewers would be getting the screws turned on them if they go for it.

LENIII reports that the twins could be part of the deal that could send Jake Peavy to the Cubs. The twins trade a young pitcher and get Mark Derosa (for a year). The twins are expected to put a list of pitchers together of who they would be willing to deal.

hoepfully its not alot since derosa is a free agent after next season, but i doubt theyd take someone like Duensing

The Twins wouldnt do it, they are playing for the 2010 season, so why would they give a couple pitching prospects for renting an over payed player for a year that wouldnt resign with us anyway.

Looks like J.J. Putz is going to be the set up man for the Mets. 3 team trade that involved the Indians.

Kerry Wood is going to be the closer for the Indians

Yankees offered A.J. Burnett a 5 year deal.

I hate the Yankees. They buy everybody. 7yr-$161mil for CC. $23 mil per season. Come on. I heard he has an opt-out clause after the 3rd year.

We all hate the Yankees. Thing is however, they still fail to win the World Series every year, and now they can't even make the play-offs. They haven't learned they need 9 guys on the field with chemistry that like playing together and not 9 overpriced whiney chumps that can't get along.

CC hasn't pitched a full year in awhile. He is overweight. Give him a the other chubby overpriced guy, Joba Chamberlain a month maybe two and they will both be on the DL, sitting on the bench discussing which restaurant to go to after the game.

    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
