Eric Hacker flies the coop?



Jerry Crasnick is reporting on ESPN.com that Fresno starting pitcher Eric Hacker, he of the 16 win record this past season, has signed a major league deal with the Minnesota Twins.  Apparently Hacker was a FA due to his 6 year minor league service time.  Smart move for him in terms of opening up a possible major league career.  With our pitching staff, he wasn't going to get an opportunity to pitch in SF in the near future, barring a big spate of injuries.  We've seen the success that some of our older castoffs like Matt Palmer and Kevin Correia have been able to attain away from SF in recent years, so it will be interesting to watch Hacker's progress.
