    Twins Pick up OCab from A's

    Looks like the Twins picked up Orlando Cabrera for Tyler Ladenorf (minors SS).

    Decent pickup. If we were gonna take someone from the A's I'd rather have Adam Kennedy, but this will allow the team to put him at short, rotate Casilla/Pinto at 2nd and use Harris to spell Crede at 3rd.

    Glad to see Bill Smith listen to his players

    Harris should become the everyday 2b, but I don't have much faith in Gardy to bench his boy Punto.

    I'd agree with this. Punto is such a waste of space at the plate.

    I'm still baffled that guy is making $4 million this year. With deals like this to him and Mike Lamb, how the club continues to be called frugal is beyond me

    Finally the Twins make a move in season! Seems like it has been a while since they have made a trade to improve the team in the middle of the season.

    Re: Twins Pick up OCab from A's

    Apparently the A's are paying for a good chunk of the 1.5 mill he's owed still as well

    MLB Trade: Orlando Cabrera traded to Minnesota Twins - ESPN

    Looking like a good deal

    Re: Twins Pick up OCab from A's

    Remember the Twins did just sign Mark Grudzielanek also a week or two ago. He should be ready here in about a week. If he can come in and hit .270 at 2b that'd be a HUGE upgrade. Hopefully Gardy will bench Punto and Casilla and let the good guys play. Hopefully the Twins aren't done trading, and can find a way to get a relief pitcher or possibly a starter.

    Re: Twins Pick up OCab from A's

    I like this trade. Maybe OCab isn't the best SS out there, but I think it's what we need to compete this year. Plus with the Grudzy signing, this could be a very interesting stretch run.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Where is Grudzielanek at now?

    Never mind, found it here.

    He got a solid recommendation from Crede for being a good clubhouse and team guy. Basically said that problems in chitown were more the fault of Ozzie than OC.
