Silva's coming back
class=img_thumbleft>Okay, Hunter I understand. But Silva? I don't care how thin the free agent market is, or how young the other Twins starters are; paying the dude $4.3 million to serve up batting practice just doesn't seem like sound payroll management. Hey, I like the guy as much as anyone else. But he's a sinkerball pitcher who lost his sinker. He had all season to find it, and in the end he put up, what, two decent games?
Nobody's going to love this move, which is why the Twins are already doing damage control by claiming it was the only one they had. Do you believe them? Are you happy to see Silva return?
