    Let's get real and at least add Baxendale and maybe Dinkelman.

    The other thing these all had in common is that they were August waiver trades. Not sure I would trade Morneau and certainly not Willingham for that quality.

    Capps for Ramos is close right?

    Also traded spects for Rauch, Pavano and lh reliever from the Angels (and probably a few others).

    So you want to unload older players and respond by going $100 mil+ to lock up an OF in his decline years?

    When there is a young player ready to take the spot. Otherwise they play AAAA guys and lose even more games.

    I'm all for trading for value but no reason to just dump the guys.

    Morneau didn't have any value last year either, so there's that.

    The Twins just set a franchise record for most strikeouts in a season. And it's still August.

    This is a fair point but I would also argue it is part of a rebuilding process. Give a chance to guys on your roster and see if they can contribute.

    They probably assumed Parmelee wasn't going to...

    I don't know if that is true. Veteran bats can have value in the last year of a deal. Less risk for the acquiring team.

    There is a lot of team control left for all three players. Could easily end up "meh" for both teams.

    I admire your devotion to Parmelee but he doesn't have the bat speed. Reps won't change that.

    The fairer comparison is Plouffe. He has the tools but can't put it together and they still run him...

    My mistake I misunderstood what you meant by "turn over". I would call that "flip". Your criticism is valid but I think a little overstated. The current vets never really had the value some people...

    I think it is much more effective to think of "Terry Ryan" as a shorthand for the Twins organization.

    He will ultimately keep his job based on wins and losses at the major league level.

    A big key to life is timing right?

    Just like if the Twins get a new manager and the team improves it won't necessarily mean Gardy was incompetent.
