Minnesota Twins Need To Sign Joe Crede

Alex LjungrenContributor IFebruary 9, 2009

Recently the Minnesota Twins have expressed interest in Joe Crede. At first it sounded like the deal was for about $5 million, but now Crede seems to have upped the ante and wants $7 million.

People don't think that the Twins should take this risk because Crede just had back surgery and he wont do well on the Turf. Personally, I believe that the Twins need to do this deal. Crede will be fine on the turf. WE need a solid defender on the corner of our infield, and Crede's bat is surprising at times as well. 

I don't know if the Twins GM Bill Smith has seen what Crede has done to us in the recent years. Crede is a beast, and seems to always kill our hopes in the AL Central. The real downfall with signing this premiere guy though is his agent Scott Boras.

The guy has been banned from certain clubhouses around the league. Personally, I think this would be a decent move that the twins need to make. If we sign him, I believe that he will be a real surprise in '09!
