Thursday Links

Just thought I'd pass along a few links for people today...

Over at Twin Cities Dugout, we are conducting the 4th annual Community Top 20 Prospect list. If you're interested, go post your list. Hard to believe this is the 4th list already.

Over The Baggy looks into whether or not extending Jason Kubel was a good idea. Both Rob Neyer over ESPN and Dave Cameron of FanGraphs both believe it was a bad decision.

Nick Nelson doesn't believe that Joe Crede is the solution. As much as I'd like to see us have a defensive whiz that is capable of driving in some runs, his analysis makes complete sense.

Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune has reported that the Twins have broke-off negotiations with reliever Eric Gagne.

Seth Stohs of Seth Speaks gives some great reasons why teams may look to unload some high-buck players early.
