The first offseason move for the Twins


Courtesy of MLBTR.com the Twins have made their first offseason acquisition. Link here. According to  Jerry Crasnick Giants minor league free agent Eric Hacker has signed a major league contract with the Twins. While I know nothing about the guy, based on his statistics I'm a little surprised by the move. He was apparently a 16 game winner last year, but based on his supporting stats I don't see him as a starter for us. Maybe tipping their hand about making the bullpen much less expensive? I'm a bit surprised by the move just because his statistics just don't look that impressive, but I don't know anything about Hacker other than what I can learn from his link.  Not quite the splash we may have been looking for, but this likely means the bullpen will get cheaper to free up more payroll elsewhere. Thoughts?
