Baker Open To Long-Term Deal

Twins right-hander Scott Baker said recently that he would be open to signing a long-term deal to stay in Minnesota.  Kelly Thesier has the report over at MLB.com.

"I have definitely entertained the idea of it." Baker said. "I like this place. I like playing here. I like the coaching staff and obviously we have a great clubhouse. It's kind of up to them, but I definitely have thought about it."

Multiyear deals for pitchers can be risky, but Baker has shown the kind of consistency over the past two seasons that would warrant long-term consideration by most teams.  He is 20-13 with a 3.81 ERA in 381 innings since the start of 2007 and is still only 27 years of age.
