    Arizona is looking to get pitching and they have 2 SS Gregorious and Owens....so one could be available. Do you think the Twins could trade Gibson or any of the out of option pitchers and / or other minor leaguers for one of them as a result of the depth created by the signings.

    A simple question: are Gregorious and/or Owens any better than Santana or Polanco? If they are try to acquire them, if not, forget about trading anyone for either one of them.

    I would prefer Owings to Santana for sure. I really like Polanco, but don't seen him as a shortstop (mostly because the Twins preferred Goodrum to Polanco at SS).

    The D-backs are rumored to be looking for a front-end pitcher, so I can't see how they would match up. Maybe if Tanaka, Garza, Santana, Jimenez all sign elsewhere, and the Twins add another starter or two, they could make Gibson available. Though not high-end, he does over some mid-rotation potential. I probably wouldn't make that straight-up trade if I was the Diamondbacks, and, as a Twins fans, I'm not sure I want to give up Gibson yet either.

    The addition of Owings could allow the Twins to shop guys like Santana and Florimon though, knowing that they have second covered and have Escobar in a utility role. Plus, the Dbacks have Hill, Gregarious and Pennington covering those spots, so Owings could be used as trade bait.
