Ok, You KNOW This Will Be Done To Death...

So I may as well be the first.

Livan, Livan loves his money
He makes a lot they say

The Twins have signed Livan Hernandez to a one-year contract for $5 million, with incentives that could total $7 million.

Hmm, I guess it's a pretty good deal, or at least not as bad as signing Ramon Ortiz and Sidney Ponson. The cliches everyone uses about him are "workhorse" and "innings eater". So that's good. A nice replacement for Carlos Silva, for what that's worth. And I haven't seen anything about there being injury issues.

I saw a report dated January 25th that said he was close to signing with the Mets. I guess they found another starting pitcher.

I remember seeing him pitch during the playoffs. I don't remember how he did; I don't remember if he won or lost; I don't remember if I liked him; all I remember is having that stupid song in my head. Seriously.

I don't know anything about this guy. Actually, I don't know ANYTHING about any our new guys. I'm still crabby about all the people we've lost.
