Re: Rich Harden claimed by Minnesota
Consider the Twins also picked up Ron Mahay and Jon Rauch, they're certainly buying. Good to see the Twins pushing for once. I wonder if it's driven buy the Mauer and Morneau long term situation -- either showing them that they're trying to win to get a long term deal done or trying to win while they still have them...
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
