Trade idea?

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

How about trading Santana for Brad Hawpe and Garrett Atkins. Maybe we could get a couple of minors as well.

Some people might see this trade as bad for the Rockies but they have NO PROBLEM filling in position players -- even some like Hawpe and Atkins.

Others say we can't trade Santana -- we HAVE to. We can't keep everyone so he is the most likely player on the team to be moved. Like the Viola deal I guess.

Just wondering what you guys think of that.

Thanks

I think to move Santana we have to get a starting pitcher or starting pitcher prospects in return.

Trade Santana for a starting RF and CF. I heard the other weekend they are moving Cuddy to 3b next year.

I see the brewers released Corey Koske,or are going to be. If he was healthy, and willing to take a pay cut, I would take him back on 3rd, before putting Cuddy there. With Cuddies arm, we need him in the out field!

I agree -- Cuddy needs to stay in right field. As far as a deal -- this organization needs hitting prospects a lot more than pitching

I wouldn't mind the first rumor...David Wright and a couple of prospects from the Met's.

I sure hope not. Last time they tried that, it didn't work out at all. He needs to stay in RF with his cannon.

I don't think there is any chance the Mets would trade Wright.

That would be nice ...

The Rockies deal might be better in the long run.

IMO, it would be stupid to trade away their best pitcher/ one of the league's best pitchers. I think there has to be better ways to improve. Whether it be a different trade or the twins always productive farm system. I didn't watch as much this year as most years and don't know what they have coming up, but imo DON'T TRADE YOUR BEST PLAYER.

Ely --

I hear what you are saying, but Smilin' Carl will not open his wallet, and if you listen to Sid, we should all feel sorry for him.

There is NOTHING in the farm system that can hit a ball. Our only option is to trade him or let him go for nothing via free agency.

dahit,

Who is Sid?

Also me being out of state all summer I didn't get the normal twins exposure and info I'm used to. Thats too bad there is nothing in the farm system.

If they do trade him, I hope they get a good starting pitcher plus another quality player/ prospects.

Oh -- That is Sid Hartman -- the guy that thinks he knows everything at the Star/Tribune.

The farm system has a good amount of top pitching prospects but Zippo on the position players. That is why we need hitters for Santana and pitching prospects.

Quite the guy Sid is. A couple of weeks back he said that if Hunter signs with another team the Twins will: (A)Have a player on the current roster play CF, (B) make a trade that will bring a CF to the club, © Promote a player from the minor leagues, or (D) Sign a free agent to play CF. Are you sure about that Sid(Captain Obvious)? I thought I heard that the Twins were going to be selling raffle tickets to the general public and the winner would play in CF.

Santana isn't nearly as effective as he used to be and the numbers show that. I'd bet he'll go sometime next year before the July trading deadline. He'd become Bert Bonser in Colorado.

We've been so spoiled by having one of the best pitchers in baseball at the front of our rotation for the past few years that the guy slips from "best" to "one of the best" for a couple of months & people start calling him Bonser? Brilliant.

Although I'm sure that there are lots of GMs out there that will pause now that they "know" Santana isn't "nearly as effective as he used to be". Perhaps the Twins will be able to afford this less "effective" version of Santana after all, since he's now on Bonser's plane. smirk.gif Heck, pocket change should do it!

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.
    • kelly-p
      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there. 
    • eyeguy 54
      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
