Twins pick up Silva's 2007 option
In what I consider to be a surprise move, the Twins picked up Silva's option for 2007, which pays him $4.35 million. I can't say I completely fault the argument of needed depth, but isn't that a lot (especially with such a tight budget as the Twins have) to pay a guy who went 11-15 with a 5.94 ERA and gave up a league-leading 38 home runs? What happened to the days of finding another guy who can do that for half the price?
