The Minnesota Twins are going with a closer by committee. Rest assured, Twins fans (those same fans emboldened by the long-term extension for Joe Mauer and the off-season steals that were Jim Thome, Orlando Hudson and J.J.

Overlooked Transactions

Friday, December 11th, 2009 by AdamWhite

In scanning the transactions log (yep, I do that), here are some moves I didn’t see featured elsewhere. And, yes, I tend to focus on the negative, the irrational. Bruce Chen, Pedro Feliz and Bobby Crosby – all snatched up by poorly performing teams. Coincidence?
