    The Minnesota Twins released Tsuyoshi Nishioka on Friday, ending their experiment with the Japanese middle infielder after two rough seasons.

    The move, which the Twins said came at Nishioka's request and was supported by the club, wasn't much of a surprise. But the way the 28-year-old went out was unique.

    Accepting blame for his failure to produce at the plate or play capable defense at shortstop and second base, the Twins said Nishioka waived his right to his $3 million salary for the 2013 season and a $250,000 buyout.
    I take full responsibility for my performance which was below my own expectations. At this time, I have made the decision that it is time to part ways. I have no regrets and know that only through struggle can a person grow stronger.

      Gil Meche did that also and for a lot more money that that.

      • Giants fans have been asking Zito to do this for the past 3 years.
        The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

          Exactly. Not Trout's fault he's in a better division.

            vs better opponents, to. Wish they'd take this into account. Miggy got to face the WORST pitching staffs in the AL(9th, 10th, 13th, 14th ranked staffs) while Trout had to face the 2nd, 4th and 7th ranked staffs. It will all be ignored though since Miggy got the TRIPLE CROWN!!!!

            • It's amazing that Trout is even in the discussion for MVP after someone had a Triple Crown year. That should tell you everything you need to know.

                Good god thank you. The West has two teams better than the first place team in the central and 3 better than the second place team.

                  • Trout was way worse against AL Central teams than AL West teams, if you want to bring oppenents into the equation.

                            Edit- It's also not even true. Not sure where you're getting your numbers.

                              286 against each White Sox and Indians.
                              263 against Tigers.


                              299 against Mariners.
