    I don't know, but it made enough sense to me to write the blog in the hope that someone wiser might comment.

    Richard sounds good. My focus was on trading lower level prospects for similar prospects, but I would be happy to trade an outfield prospect and something else to get Richard.

    I wondered if we couldn't find some better pitchers, so I looked up the top prospects according to Baseball Prospectus. The have four pitchers in their top 9 and EVERY ONE of them is injured right now: three with elbow injuries and one who "feels funny." Wow. And we thought we had it bad.

    I skipped pitchers who are injured, on the theory that the Twins have plenty of injured pitchers already.

    I like the idea of looking elsewhere than just contenders for trades.
