Rondell White Signs With the Twins

I would have preferred White move out of the division, but I think the Twins made an interesting move. They were in need of a bat to fill the DH spot, and we all know Rondell can hit. Now we’re going to have to see him 20+ times, and I just have a feeling he’ll come back to haunt the Tigers.

It’s a pretty incentive laden deal, but no matter what happens, he’ll walk away with $3.25 million. At the end of the day, it he meets all of his incentive clauses, he’ll have a two year deal worth $8.25 million.

Nice pickup for the Twinks… When I read the AP story, my first thought was that Rondell is now one step closer to completing MLB’s “Skinflint Circuit”, as he has played for the Expos, Padres, Royals, Tigers, and now Twins… He still needs to latch on with the Devil Rays and maybe the Rockies to finish it up. On the other hand, he did play for the Yankees, too.

Can one reasonably call a guy who is nearly guaranteed to miss significant time with injuries a “steady” hitter? I suppose, and if there is a such a person, it’s White. When you think about it though, if you have to replace him with a bench player for the two months he’ll be out then it’s almost exactly the same has White going into a slump. Steady isn’t worth as much if you’re a lock to get injured. I’ll be amazed if White plays a full season next year.
