Twins Acquire Blaylock

In a much anticipated move the Minnesota Twins have finally made a splash in the Hot Stove League. The trade will send outfielder Torii Hunter, and pitchers Scott Baker and Kyle Lohse to acquire the former All-Star Blaylock. "This is the missing piece for our club," said an obviously excited GM Terry Ryan, "He is a long range threat, excellent on defense and it gives us a playmaker."

The 6'0", 180 pound Blaylock was excited to continue his career in Minnesota. "I'm excited to continue my career in Minnesota, they have a lot of great players and I hope I can help the team in it's quest for a championship."

Update: The Twins, first believed to have acquired Rangers' slugger Hank Blalock, announced they have actually acquired former Atlanta Hawk and Pearljam favorite Mookie Blaylock.
