Winter meetings deals for ex-Twins

30 posts in this topic

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.

    •     I have ordered a couple of time from them. They have some good panfish tackle. My order this time was $75 due to the fact that friends and family also wanted some jigs. When you out fish them 2 days in a row they take notice 
    • Like Papa Bear said, unless you have 14' sheets you will have more seams.  Not only will you have to deal with the vertical seams on the studs but you will also have to deal with the horizontal seams.  More seams = more money and more chance for a leak.  VHB tape is not cheap so the less you have to buy the better. 
    • 44 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY. One thing you always can count on here at Lake Iwanttobethere is that after a lousy day there will be a nice day. Warmer, party cloudy skies and it is warm where I sit at my desk here in the den. The brown dog is at my feet, his paws on my right foot keeping tabs on me. Yesterday was a rain day and normally I look forward to rain days as they give me time to catch up on indoor projects. Rain days in the dead of winter however do nothing more then create work. Ground is frozen so all we have is runoff which here in the cabin means a wet floor in the basement. Overnight the water freezes and now we quickly go through the ice melt trying to get rid of the ice so it is safe to walk on the sidewalks.   Ranger Rick is reporting that his trail system at Samantha Lake is a mess. The rain and warm weather has eaten away at his trails. The short cut across Samantha Lake is not recommend to use as their is water on the ice and getting on and off the lake is unsafe at best. No fishermen on the lake yesterday but then again it rained more then a half an inch. Big hockey game on tonight the Wild against the Black Hawks. We will see if putting the seventy inch TV in will draw a beer drinking crowd. I would love to be there but have been under the weather the past few days and will be watching from home.   I have gotten a few e-mail’s asking about Lake Iwanttobethere and it is a good time to be a little more clear about the Lake. The wife has never had her named mentioned in the eleven years I have been writing about the lake. She told me she did not want anyone to know her name so she is always refereed to as "The Wife" of my four kids only the boys names have been used as they own business in town, the daughters have never had their names mentioned except the one who paints is sometimes spoken about as at Christmas she paints store front windows. None of the eight grand kids names have been mentioned but they are often refereed to a granddaughter number two or grandson number three. The two ten year olds are spoken about often and are refereed to as "The Tenners"   Almost every one in town is based on someone I know. A few of them have passed on but I still write about them, kind of my tribute to them. I could still be writing about my old dogs Bud and Barney as they left me with a ton of stories untold but I shared my loss with you over them and have moved on. Now I leave it up to you how much the Lodge and Resort are. One of you called the Resort a bar and it is far more then that. The Lodge is a place for members to hang their hats. There are lockers in the basement for their stuff and a chair in the Main Room to sit and be left alone. Not everyone drinks, for example everyday Tom sits at the end of the bar with a cup of coffee every morning and does his crossword puzzle. I never mention him much because that is just what he does. The FELLOWS on the other hand seem to be doing something all the time that you may find interesting. The Resort is a place for the guys to get away from the Lodge if that makes any sense.   The Resort has become like our Lake Iwanttobethere old guys home. Marv, Elmer, DOC and Vic are the core and none of them are married and they are doing just fine thank you. Chuck, Hammering Hank, Skinny and I are the next wave, the in betweeners so to speak. Married but still looking for a hideaway. Where is Lake Iwanttobethere? I’ll save that for another day.
    • Season has been over for awhile but now I have a couple of Grouse who just strut in my back yard taunting me. Duncan has tried to put the fear into them but no matter how quick he is they are up in the trees before he can get halfway across the yard. He does come back with that stupid lab look on his face so I guess everyone is enjoying themselves here late in the winter. I hope to hear them drumming this spring.
    • cool!!  and thanks again for the info!!  i look forward to getting it.
    •  Used to, then he lost it to Vince and Nick Cage in a Segway race on Tropicana.
    • Your going to like it. Definitely not "the best", but still definitely worth the money. Mine came slight damaged... one of the flanges where the leg attaches to the barrel was bent slightly. It was easily fixed but I decided to contact RK about it... They said to send them pictures, and within 2 days I had a phone call offering either a full exchange or $100 credit to my card. I gladly took the credit. I fired it up around Xmas time in 15-20 degree weather. I was worried how it would do in the cold. It handled it like a champ and only took about 15 min longer to smoke an entire pork loin.
    • Unless you have a source for 14' sheets you would end up with vertical and horizontal seams. No real problem with that, that I can think of. 
    • Speaking of automation     http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/01/health/robot-sex-future-technosexuality/   Ok, which one of you fellas has one
