Something that would never happen

But I'd consider it--and I wonder if anyone else would.  Would you trade for Manny Ramirez?  I think I might, actually--what say you?

I would install him as the full-time DH, DFA Monroe, and create a sort of platoon between Kubel and Gomez, with Span shifting between center and right depending on which of the other two are playing.  Of course, if Cuddyer comes back, it creates a playing time problem, but I'd worry about that when the time comes.

Actually, if Cuddyer is anywhere close to returning, it isn't out of the realm that the Sox would take him back for Ramirez--I'd actually do that, I think.  I don't know what the Sox would be looking for, but it couldn't be much in terms of inexpensive prospects given Manny's salary and issues. 

He's owed something around 7M for the rest of this year, and then there are two team option years at 20M.  As much as the Twins cry poverty, they could pick it up for next year as well.  Manny can freaking hit, and as a DH, it keeps his knees healthier, and you don't have the defensive mishaps. 

I know this is completely outside the Twins box, and I'm not sure I would do it--but something fun to talk about while the trade deadline approaches without activity.
