If the Twins are truly "sellers" as July's trade dealine approaches, who do we think could be dealt? The obvious one is Justin Morneau, perhaps followed closely by Josh Willingham.
I would have liked to have seen the Twins sign Myers, particularly over Correia or even Pelfrey, but I do wonder if they even made a competitive offer. The Indians are no more of a contender than the...

I don't think Webb has a ton of upside at this point, but in the position the Twins are in they have to pursue every avenue to find pitching.
Here's my look at the Twins signing of Jeff Clement.
Certainly not an...
In terms of cost, Figgins may be a good option. But in terms of what he can still offer at this stage of his career, I see some Tony Bautista/Juan Castro/name another low-cost veteran the Twins have...

It feesl like the Twins would be selling high on Willingham, but I agree that they would not get much for him in a trade. At least not anything (a starting pitcher?) of equal value. It's better to...
Yeah, but I do think the Giants will have to pay some of that money next year to get a deal done with anyone if they are serious about unloading him.
I know it's unrealistic in a lot of ways, but does anyone else but me see Tim Lincecum as a possible trade target for the Twins?
It occurs to me the Giants may need an outfielder like Denard...

Sign Greinke and deal Span for another mid-level starter? That sounds like a good plan to me :)
Oh, I didn't realize he dropped Boras as his agent. I should have done a little more investigation, but I didn't see that particular news when researching him.
Obviously the Twins will target starting pitching this offseason. This may have been discussed already, but what do we think of Edwin Jackson as a potential free agent signing?
I think he could be...
I like Josh Johnson as a trade target for the Twins, even with the questions of his injury history and what the Marlins would want in return. Someone else may have mentioned elsewhere in this thread,...

I absolutely agree, Baker at any level as long as he is healthy is better than most that made a start this year.

This will be last word on this, then I'll let it go- I like to think I do good work, and others seem to give me positive feedback...

The powers that be did tell me I could post links to my work here, but maybe I should refrain if others are offended. Oh, and I'm not "trolling for traffic"-it's called promoting my work, but call it...

Thanks, that's good advice. I guess I just didn't appreciate the insinuation that I am not well-informed.
I agree with you, but I'm not so sure about the option? A cheap option ( around $1...

Sorry, I actually just joined late last week and did not peruse the archives re: Baker. And there actually was some new news that he is throwing off flat ground now, which prompted my article.

I think it's safe to say the Twins will not pick up Scott Baker's $9.25 million option for next year, but I do think they could bring him back at a much lower salary if he looks healthy coming back...

I don't think it's too soon to look back on 2012, and debate who was the Twins' best free agent signing from last winter?
We clearly can't overlook what Josh Willingham did this year, but I said...
Here is my analysis of the Nishioka situation, feature at Rant Sports.com
Even if the Twins had a major need for offense, there is no way the Angels give up Trumbo for anyone they can offer.

It's pretty clear the Twins need starting pitching, and they should leave no stone unturned in that pursuit.
On that note, here is an article I recently wrote for Rant Sports.com taking a look at...
