The Twins parted ways with Ramon "The White Flag" Ortiz on the 15th, shipping him off to Colorado for middling infield "prospect" Matt Macri, who managed to put up decent numbers in Double-A as a 25 year-old (don't get your hopes up, Matt).
Even though GameDay editor John Bonnes already conceded the point on his blog, I'd like to rub his preseason comment that the Twins couldn't do much better for $3-4 million than Ramon Ortiz in his face one last time. As I see it, here is how things shook out for the Twins as a result of the Ortiz signing, with respect to which players currently call the Twins' minor league system home:
Ben Revere - OF
Matt Macri - INF
Andrew Brackman - SP
I'll take Option B. Anyone honestly think Brian Cashman would trade Brackman for Revere and Macri?
