Pohlad dropping all salary

Recommended Posts

Here's my thoughts on the Twins.

They aren't going to spend anymore money.

They're going to dump as much salary as possible, meaning Hunter and Santana are gone.

Carl's only "World Series" left to win was a new stadium.

Dump salary, take in as much revenue with the new stadium, and just before attendance completely drops off, dump the team, either to his son(s) or highest bidder.

The current ownership group strictly runs it like a business, meaning no monies from other businesses to support it. What it makes, is what it makes.

The last thing they had to do was get a new stadium and now that's been "won".

Just get as much money back, and either dump the team, or go back to the mid 90's.

Just another opinion. What if they did sign Hunter and Santana for another three or four years. You would have them around for the opening of the new stadium plus a year. If they kept up the level of play, they'd be up for Rocky Mountain size piles of money. If not, they'd retire. You'd have big names for two years then rebuild. If they got whatever they could for Santana and put the Hunter type money into some new blood they might have a new crop of "heros" that they could tie up for longer periods of time after the stadium is up and running. It may not be too impressive for now but they might be actually looking at a brighter picture for the long haul.

Hunter will be a Texas Ranger and they will bring in someone (Coco Crisp), for less than 1/2 his salary.. Thats one scenario I have read about at least..

My bet is that Hunter will end up in Texas.

You guys keep forgetting about the Windy City. I hear tings. "What kind of tings". Tings, I hear tings.

Raging Bull quote.

Mr Hunter might look mighty fine in the Black and Silver patrolling center field here in the Windy City.

I think it is so. And I said Tings, though Tori will be able to score plenty of Bling on the Mag Mile here in the Windy with his new overbloated salary. Like I said in another post, as long as it is OPM (other peoples money) I say bring it on. I don't own stock in the Pale Hose so load that salary up, make Georgie Porgie nervous in the Big Apple!

Lawdog,

Tori had two face to face meetings with Kenny Williams and found out the Sox were going to cap their offer at 75 mil for the 5 years, when the Halos opened up the piggy bank and went 15 million higher did you really expect Tori to go into details about the teams that didn't bid higher? What are you thinking man, has the cold weather froze your brain already up there?

You all really do know that Pollad's net worth is irrelevant, don't you? Do you guys really think any of the owners this side of Steinbrenner digs into their own pockets to pay for a player? It's a business. If we want big name players we will have to pay for them. I think the Twins are still the lowest priced tickets in MLB. I'm sure once the new stadium is built the prices will be higher and the team will get all revenues from the games. None of the baseball revenue will go to the Vikings anymore. Maybe then, you might hear the Twins name come up in free agent season.

Take a look at the 2008 prices. Cheapest lower level seat is now $30. And it's $50 behind the plate (as if you can get those without some connections...) Even the Home Run Porch is $20 next year. Maybe they're still low compared to other league parks, but it's getting tougher to treat the family to a game under the teflon sky...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.
    • mrpike1973
      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
