Luis Castillo traded to Twins

Honestly guys, if history repeats itself and they get the right guys. They'll be back in the fold in about 5 years with another world championship. Maybe not the WS title, but I think they'll be okay as long as they get good prospects like they did in 1997. I mean they shipped off everybody in the same manner.

It's a start... Let's keep the ball rolling.


Where are you from in North Dakota Savvy? I grew up there, went to school there before I moved out to Baltimore.

I think it is going to be KC .. If I remember right their owner already offered to get "bought out"
Washington would seem the logical choice of course, but I think that baseball will surive there after a third attempt. If of course, they can get a ball park.

I think its dumb to eliminate the teams, just move them. I think MLB could really produce in places like Mexico City, PR, Portland, Vegas, just move them out to better places and get new owners. Have you ever been to an Oregon Ducks game? CRAZY amonts of people and the Trailblazers always get fans.

Well, atleast the Twins have a second baseman now other than Boone ;-D Need to get a bat now to help the lineup. Now if only we can get rid of Mays and Lohse in a deal :-?

A little early to be taking Castillo, isn't it? I'd think 4th round at the earliest... ;-7

I'd be looking to move Radke as well. He has already said this will be his last year, though I believe he has a clause. But I'd try and get something for him.

Baker

Looks really good...any word where Boof or Balfour will be this year?
