Is it me, or is starting pitcher pretty much the best gig in pro sports?
You work like once every 5 days, you get to dip all the time, and if your stuff is good, you can let your body go. Sure there's a lot of pressure, but there's a lot of pressure at every other position in pro sports too.
Oh I know you have the ammo. Wondering if the Twins would pull the trigger though. They didn't want to give Hicks up for Cliff Lee. Greinke is a lot younger, so maybe they would include him this time.
I don't think that was the reason the deal didn't get done. Seattle wanted an impact bat and Hicks isn't that. He's projected to be a plus plus defensive centerfielder (range and an arm graded among the very best in recent memory) with wheels and some pop. Seattle got Smoak, and that was what made them make the deal.
