Twins miss out, Garza is better than any starter we have. Stop the BS the Twins will not spend reasonable money to improve team.

Garza for 5 years? He's been on the verge of a major injury for the past 4 seasons. He's been on the DL in 3 of the last 4 seasons. The Twins need hitting now more than Matt Garza.

Go take a look at Nolascos last 4 seasons and tell me he is worth 49 million and Garza isint worth 50.....

The Brewers are still the Brewers. They will NEVER win a world series. They are the Vikings of baseball.

The Garza deal seems better than the Nolasco deal right now but I'm willing to bet Garza breaks down and Nolasco just fares as well as every other RH SP the Twins have brought from the National League.

3 years from now both pitchers contracts will look terrible because one will be ineffective and the other will be hurt was my point.

We can always find flaws in any free agent. Need to at least TRY and improve your team.

I'm sure the reason Garza isn't a Twin is because of his injury history. No way Ryan was going to give this guy a lot of money. I wish Garza well though and time will tell if Ryan made the right move in ignoring him.

i like our starting rotation nolasko,hughes,deduno,korreia.the 5th spot will be either pelphrey or gibson.its our offense im worried about.

Go take a look at Nolascos last 4 seasons and tell me he is worth 49 million and Garza isint worth 50.....BALLFOUR: Why didn't you do that? Last five seasons, Nolasco 62-54, Garza 48-45. Nolasco has thrown more innings. 30 starts in 4 of the past five. Garza hasn't started 30 since 2011. Nolasco has shown up more often and won more often in the past five than Garza.
