Too bad the same can't be said of Stewart. I know people want to mention the Twins better record when Stewart's healthy, but when you're a small market team and his dirt-cheap replacement is putting up better offensive #'s and is a better OF.....I don't buy it.
Yeah I agree, I don't like having Ford on the bench for Stewert, for one main reason... he should put up at least 90% of Stewert's numbers and cost about 5.7 mil less, think of the relief we could get in the bullpen....
Your right too about being a small market team, we have roughly 55 million we can possibly spend.... our strongest spot in AAA (counting Ryan and Ford) is by far and away OF. So why have Hunter, Jones, and Stewert clogginp 15-18 million of that chunk.... when we can get 80% of that production for 90% cheaper and get our crappy at best pitching staff better??
