I was on NBC SportsTalk with Eric Kuselias last night, talking about the Josh Hamilton signing.
I apologize for using the phrase “truth bomb.” I have been fined $250 for being so lame and will spend the next few weeks talking with middle schoolers about how to avoid going down the same dark and douchey roads on which I have traveled.

The Twins just announced that they have signed pitcher Michael Pineda to a two-year contract.
Pineda, 28, has a 4.05 career ERA and has struck out 9.1 batters per nine innings over 680 career major league innings.
Pineda underwent Tommy John surgery this past July, so the Twins are buying a 2018 filled mostly with rehab and a pitcher for 2019. As such, the deal is probably not too taxing financially, but could pay off pretty well for them if Pineda comes back strong.
