    Peter Gammons:Delmon Young climbed on the Twins bus to Comerica Park and informed players he'd been traded to the team they're playing tonight.

    well thats going to be an awkward bus ride. Especially when he puts on a tigers hat or starts making plans for the playoffs.

    I can see it now:

    A call to his travel agent..."Yeah, susie, Delmon here. I am going to need to cancel that trip that I had at the beginning of October. Something just came up. I think that I might be busy that day."

    Well, I'm not sure there has ever been anything more predictable than that Delmon Young bomb right there.

    Saw that coming a mile away. Nice cookie Liriano.

    Any chance he can be the player to be named later?

    Well, they weren't likely at all to offer him a contract this offseason anyway. Might as well get something for him. Save 1.3 million and maybe a small chance of one of the minor leagues doing something.

    Bigger deal I think is the $6 to $7 million they won't be paying him next year that can go into the No.1 Starter/middle inf/CuddyerKubel kitty.

    Should be up to somewhere around $35 mil to spend now (and that assumes flat payroll, and not even modest increase)

    Well, he wasn't going to be tendered a contract anyway, so that 6 or 7 million didn't exist.

    I haven't looked closely at the payroll, but where are you getting 35 million? I know Capps won't be back, but they are already talking to Cuddyer and Kubel. I think they'll pay to keep Kubel and I think there is a decent chance to sign Cuddyer at a slight discount, given how much he likes Minnesota.

    Nathan is a question mark. I think they'll keep him, but hopefully cheaper.

    The Star Tribune has put the "back of the napkin" number at $83 million for base payroll next year in numerous different articles and blogs.

    That was assuming none of the free agents return, but also assumes estimates for raises for all arbitration eligible players. That would include Delmon, thus, the 6 to 7 million will make a difference.

    I mean, how would it not exist? 6 mill to delmon, or a few hundred thousand to Tosoni? His roster spot is going to be roughly 6 mil cheaper next year.

    Re: Twins trade Delmon Young to Tigers

    If you take the $83 million, now you lose Delmon from the arb guys, you're down to around $77 million.

    Slowey and Liriano? If they're traded or non-tendered, then the number goes even lower.

    Even if you assume payroll makes no jump from the 113ish this year, 113-77= 36 million to play with to fill out the roster.
