Twins Made Significant Offers To Four Free Agents - RealGM

The Minnesota Twins made "significant" offers to four free agents Wholesale NFL
, who passed up on the pacts this offseason.

Minnesota's Opening Day payroll reportedly ranked 24th in Major League

Twins president Dave St. Peter on Monday told 1500 ESPN that the club made at
least four significant offers this offseason that were turned down.

"We made offers to Matt Garza, a very significant offer. We made a
significant offer to Ervin Santana. We made a significant offer to A.J.
Pierzynski. We made a significant offer to Rajai Davis. There were a number of
guys," St. Peter said.

Those players turned down the Twins' offer and chose to sign with another

? If any one achievement of Technology has changed, the face of wrestling it
is Television. Television and Wrestling goes back to Black and White sets. Us
older people will remember those and really makes us feel old. The young however
will not know what they use. It was two colors Black and White or shades of the
two. It did give us our Sports entertainment fix. It then reached a new era when
color came into existence, Color was the future (at the time) it made it fun to
watch the flashy costumes and robes. In the early days, nearly everyone had a
robe Wholesale
, Jacket or other accessories. It soon took over and the
Black and White or BW soon was no more. Color dominated the market and the only
question was how big of a screen, 19, 26 or 32 or even bigger. The limit was how
much you wanted to spend. The invention of the VCR or Video Cassette Recorder
gave us another soon to be important luxury. We could tape Wrestling, watch it
at another time or save it, and build a collection. Then Vincent Kennedy McMahon
invented the concept of Wrestle Mania and launched or helped launch the Concept
of Pay Per View. Pay per View was new and it was seeing the event live. Best of
all there was no parking, tickets Cheap Jerseys From
, snacks or traffic. You called your cable provider and then
tuned in on day and time and sat back and watched on the edge of your seat. Not
all early pay per view was a success. The Wrestling Classic re formatted into
the current Royal Rumble. It also was the only car give away ever attempted. A
Rolls Royce Super Cloud 3 sports car was the grand prize. He did have a string
of hits, Summer Slam Survivor Series and Wrestle mania. The four shows drew huge
money and allowed using money to create a better product. A better product
turned into more money it was the circle of life (sorry Disney). Back then, a
Pay per view was $29.99 and Wrestle mania was $39.99. Wrestle mania cost more
because it was an hour longer than a standard show. In the early days of TNA,
they attempted a weekly PPV at $14.99 it soon crushed by Vince is commanding
hold or chokehold of the Cable Industry. He generated millions of dollars and
could choose when things aired. Rumors circulated that he would block time just
so they would get bad times or no sponsors as he had locked up all the big money
contracts. The AWA attempted a pay per view, which because of McMahon opoly
actually lost money and caused them soon go out of business. Even a late deal
with cable network ESPN would be too little too late. Many feel the ESPN deal
was because Vince allowed it and felt no threat as he raided all the good
talent. Without revenue, how do you pay contracts and rent facilities? Back
then Cheap NFL
, school gyms got use. It was inexpensive was able to hold
a good crowd and write off as a fundraiser for school charity. Arenas took more
effort back then to fill and only big cards could draw the money and crowds
necessary to make profits. It makes me wonder how Japan could pay $14,000 plus
to a wrestler for one night or a reported $60,000 for Ultimate Warrior or
McMahon and never be televised or PPV. Even today paying a mega star is not
cheap. In addition to Ric Flairs, $17,000 for an appearance there is his meals,
hotels and transportation (air and limo). Lesser known but still popular draw
$1 Cheap
,500 plus expenses. Then there is an insurance permit,
advertising posters and lets not forget free tickets for UPS or Family. Granted
it may only be 10 tickets but at $15 $20 a seat that adds up quick. However,
come on are you really going to take Nana?s Retirement Check money to see her
grandchild?s achievement. I do not think even Don King is that rude? Then if
something goes wrong like tickets not selling or severe weather affecting the
attendance. One way to cushion the proposed loss is to set an attendance
guarantee. Let us say the facility holds 3,000 seats you put a clause saying the
facility buys or guarantees 700 seats this way you know expenses get paid in the
worse case scenario after all why should you lose on your investment? If you are
a good seller, you will show the facility that they will recover their
investment and make a profit themselves. Again, it is all about money. Your sure
you have a sellout hit Wholesale Jerseys From
, you also will receive a percentage of merchandise sales
especially if your smart you?ll receive anywhere from 25 50 of what is sold. You
can be generous and let the kids run the concessions and make money for their
clubs. Now being in a Camera Crew, (most schools have an AV Staff) or free
access TV Crew and reap the reward of Television Revenue. You can find small
local networks that might buy your product and the cycle continues. In doing all
this, I forgot one critical thing. Pay yourself either with the leftover profit
or be smart and pay yourself as a performer thus guan teeing a paycheck no
matter how bad things go. That guarantee seat clause has saved you from sleeping
in your car and eating leftovers. Now just as it looked like we hit the end of
the road Science did not let is down. They created the DVR or Digital Video
Recorder. No bulky tapes but limited in how much you can save. Oh well
everything has plus and minuses. It is easier to bypass commercials but sucks
when Raw runs over as.
