Twins Blogs Weigh In | Thoughts on the Joe Crede Signing

Last Saturday Joe Crede signed with the Minnesota Twins. The contract is $2.5M guarenteed plus incentives that could push its value to $7M based on plate appearances. These are the thoughts from the blogs across Twins Nation:

Howard Sinker – “It’s a good move”
How does this look to you (Joe Crede addition edition)?

Twinkie Town – “If he’s healthy enough to log all those plate appearances, I’m optimistic he’s also healthy enough to provide some pretty good defense at the hot corner as well. If the worst happens and he’s unable to shake his injuries, then there’s nothing about this contract that will handcuff the organization.”

    This is a great pick up for the Twins. It goes to show with a down economy, now is the time for smaller market teams to grab some deals, even if it is for the short term.
