Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Twins offer arbitration to Pavano, Crain and Hudson

Posted by: Phil Miller under Twins transactions Updated: November 23, 2010 - 9:59 PM

The Twins offered salary arbitration to free agents Carl Pavano, Jesse Crain and Orlando Hudson but declined to offer arbitration to Matt Guerrier, Brian Fuentes and Jon Rauch, General Manager Bill Smith said tonight in an e-mail.

The Hudson decision was the biggest surprise, since there have been indications the Twins are ready to let Hudson sign elsewhere. Hudson, Crain and Pavano have until Nov. 30 to decide whether to accept arbitration, which would keep them on a one-year contract at a salary determined through the arbitration process.

I'll have more on these decisions in a story posted later tonight.
