Baines:

For what it's worth Gonzo in the post game story said that TV replays in the press box showed Flowers tagged him.

Watching the Twins telecast because I'm out of market. Their replay clearly showed morneau being tagged out on Tyler's first tag attempt. You can even see Mourneau's jersey ripple where he is being tagged.

That doesn't mean that Flowers shouldn't have made sure of the tag instead of looking at the ump for the call.... just saying. Hardly a case for new low defensively... we've had much worse plays.
No question about it. That pop fly that fell between three Sox players in shallow CF Monday night was worse.

I agree. Either that or the Dunn drop of the pop up at first a few days ago was the absolute low point of the season for me.

I agree that pitching is impossible to find. BUT, if we aren't contending, we have to put Peavy up for sale. If a number 1/2 starter with a 2+ years on a good financial deal can't bring top prospects from a contending team, no one can.

The key is to cut a good deal. As you said, our prior efforts have been poor: bad deals and bad talent evaluation. Just wait for a great offer and negotiate. No special deals for "Friends" and no reaches for positions we think we need. Get the best young players you can because we need all positions. If we can't get a 3rd basemen, we can live with Gillespie, e.g.
And if a great offer doesn't come, don't trade...wait until next year. He'll be valuable then to.
