"Baseball players are smarter than football players. How often do you see a baseball team penalized for too many men on the field?" ~ Jim Bouton
The supply of good CF seems very low now.
EDIT: for the Twins, I think it's a good deal.
For the Reds, it's harder to say, as we have plenty of holes to fill. I know Jr is a weak glove in CF, but he's close to adequate. There's other holes on this club that are downright putrid that I'd spend that 12 million on first.

Thank you Walt and Bob for bringing winning baseball back to Cincy
Nov. 13, 2007: One of the greatest days in Reds history: John Allen gets the boot!
Either stick with Deno or possibly get Aaron Rowand. Hes not a great hitter but he plays hard and brings alot of energy to a team.
This Twins will likely try to work out a 3 year contract with Torii so they don't have to pay him 12M this season.
Something like 3 yr 27 million is likely 8/9/10 or something along those lines. Torii knows if he has a bad season this year he won't get 3 yr 27 mil on the open market. He also has expressed his desire to play in Minnesota.
