Twins, Dodgers Lead Charge For Blake

6:31pm: Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune says the Twins offered Blake a two-year deal worth about $6MM per year with an option for 2011.  Christensen says not to expect a signing tonight.  Jayson Stark wrote earlier today that if the Twins or Dodgers guarantee a third year they'll get Blake.

9:07am: Casey Blake's agent Jim McDowell talked to all kinds of outlets yesterday.  In speaking with Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, McDowell said they're not far apart with the Dodgers or Twins.  The Twins are apparently "within shouting distance" on the years and money.  The Indians seem less interested than the other two clubs; Anthony Castrovince doesn't see it happening.  Castrovince notes that the Tribe could've signed Blake through '09 a year ago but figured Andy Marte would be ready.

Yesterday Yahoo's Tim Brown said McDowell's initial request was $20MM over three years for Blake, more than the Twins want to spend.
