Before all the negative comments begin, I am glad they signed him. It is crazy what these guys get paid, but I think this could turn out to be a "bargain" if he improves in year two post surgery, as most pitchers do following TJ surgery. He is young enough to have two productive years as our number 4 or 5 starter. Now sign garza and the makeover of the starters is complete. Hopefully Gibson and Meyer will impress at the MLB level soon.

Waste of money for a below average pitcher, don't count on Ryan signing any more pitchers. Lets see if he gets some offense now.

Yikes. I hope this doesn't mean we have stopped pursuing real quality pitchers.

tommy john surgery usually takes two years to come back from. just ask joe Nathan. this guy is a bargain at this price. I remember 1987 when all we had was bert Blyleven and frank viola and we won with a clubhouse full of guys who just played well together. I have confidence this is a step forward. for all the naysayers lets just say lets see what happens!

Only way Arroyo or Garza come here is with massive overpays. Why else would they join a cellar team like the Twins? Not worth doing those deals now.

Wow is all I can say, that kind of money for an average to poor pitcher. I mean, 5-13 and an ERA close to 6 at target field and he gets a raise.
