    The Twins are having a moving sale this weekend:

    Sadly, all my money is committed to the NHRA Lazy-Boy.

    The Twins opened a spot on their 40-man yesterday, and I thought they were in the running for Aki Iwamura.

    Sadly, they were once again outbid by the big-market Pirates.

    I need a date to mark in my planner with a big red sparkly heart.

    Proof that even when the Pirates do spend, the stupidity gets them.

    I like Iwamura, and he's certainly reasonably priced, but it does seem an odd signing for them.

    If Iwamura is the highest-paid player on your roster, something is not right.

    And that's why the Pirates are the Pirates, let's lowball a much better player at the same position to ultimately save pennies on the dollar.

    He's not going to have any money with which to fuck up this offseason.

    He's got no choice but to dump his No. 3 OBP guy, and if he's lucky he won't have to take an equal contract in return, but I don't know if he'll be that lucky.

    After that, the payroll is going slightly up, but so is a bunch of those backloaded contracts he loves so much. The 2010 Cubs will look a lot like the 2009 Cubs.
