Harden likes the Twins "no pressure" approach? Well baby Joe Mauer just loves it. Big money, little bat, no pressure to perform or win.

Nice attempt at humor with your article title...BIG FAIL. The Twins are forever in the pattern of trying to find a cheap player that will suddenly come back to prior years form. Largely unsuccessful and my guess is that the same will hold true hear. It would be nice for ONCE that Pohlad opened his massive wallet and brought in a current star, not a has been.

Would be wonderful if Harden heals up and gives the Twins 200+ innings.....they need a work horse, and he could be the guy..........

Good luck Rich. Hope it works out for both you and the Twins. Looking forward to seeing you pitch at Target Field this summer.

This guy seems like a class act. Positive attitude. Fight through the pain. Work hard, but careful. Do the right thing by the team. And loves baseball. I hope it works out for him. He's the kind of guy this team needs.

"We said we'll take it slow. You don't even need to try to make the team. If you're not ready, we've got time," said Antony. Hey,Phil, you forgot to include Antony's last quote to Harden: "We're desperate."

Hope Rich makes it back. He's one of the few real major leaguers on the team. Pohlad has really screwed over the fans. Minnesota builds him a new stadium and he cuts payroll. This guy has no shame. A typical example of American Greed!
