you're my man on
Two years ago I did three pages: Michael Cuddyer, Terry Steinbach and Gene Larkin. When the prices for those three went up, I let the sponsorships lapse -- and wound up busting my budget for 2011 on Joe Mauer.
That worked about as well for me as it did for the Twins.
I said at the time that I was unlikely to re-up on that one, and when the new price tag ($240) came in an e-mail recently I started looking elsewhere.
I remain baffled by B-R's pricing mechanism. Here are the price tags on a few available Twins/ex-Twins:
- Justin Morneau, $135
- Jamey Carroll, $205
- Jason Kubel, $225
- Matt Capps, $95
- Francisco Liriano, $90
- Carl Pavano, $80
- Alexi Casilla, $50
- Roy Smalley, $30
- Steinbach, $30
- Cuddyer, $550
Five hundred fifty dollars? For Cuddyer? Really?
I went with Glen Perkins at $35. There are a couple of guys who might make the team I may make a play on if they do.
