SOUNDTRACK: "I'm Done Running From You," Mikal Cronin
- So, is the Phil Hughes deal a good one? For him or the Twins? Grant Brisbee has some thoughts.
- To make room for Hughes, the Twins designated pitcher and Australian Liam Hendriks for assignment. Jesse wrote a lil' bit about it.
- What is the secret to Ricky Nolasco's success? Friend of the blog Parker Hageman asked him. (It involves pitching inside.)
- The Rockies now have Michael Cuddyer, LaTroy Hawkins, Justin Morneau, AND JASON PRIDIE AW YEAH. If Tom Prince isn't their backup catcher I'll be stunned.
- Via breaking news machine/high school senior Chris Cotillo, we find out that six teams have kicked the tires on Nick Blackburn. Six.
- Speaking of old Twins, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports that a number of teams are also expressing interest in the ever-scrappy Jamey Carroll.
