What is wrong with the Hughes signing?


He hasn't been very good, hitters hitting .306 against him this year. They paid him based on last year when he hasn't had an era under 4 in 5 years. He can still turn it around, but it was a desperate signing. Same thing with Nolasco "you finally had a good year, take all our money."

I dont know, I guess that's the going rate for anybody with a pulse.

Are you talking about Hughes new contract since it only added million to his salary this year? He has no been 'ace' like this year.

Twins are hitting a rough spell. Is this a sign that they are 'coming' back to earth?
