The Rasmus effect

this is my first post, so here goes nothing. First of I think the twins Need to trade Jason Kubel + 2-3 prospects to the Cardinals for Colby Rasmus and Jason Motte. Rasmus is said to want out of St Louis and it sounds like the cardinals would be willing to trade him and Motte would provide help for the Disaster pen 2011. Then I think what needs to happen is offer arbitration to Pavano at about 9 mil, as well as Guerrier(8 mil) and Crain (5mil), we can Let Fuentes go but keep Capps and then trade him + 1-2 prospects for Heath Bell . Also I think that we trade Cuddy and Slowey + 2 prospects to KC for Zack Greinke. Also I let Hudson go and give Casilla and Plouffe go at i it for 2nd Base. Hardy Stays as well.  Revere can be Backup OF so OF looks like this Delmon in left and Rasmus or Denard in Center or right field. I also would try and bring back Thome for 5 mil and  then I'd go after Pat Burrell 1 year 2-4 mil to also play DH/4th OFbut more as 4th OF or Bat off the bench . So the team looks like this

Edit:

Yeah I was thinking about that we might not be able to get Grienke if we got Rasmus. So maybe we trade Kubel and Slowey Plus 1 prospect to the Cardinals for Rasmus and Motte. Then we go and sign Jake Westbrook(pitching in St Louis helped him alot last year with the pitching coach being so good) 1 year 4-5 million incentive laden deal with an option for next year. Also to if we chose only to sign one of either Crain or Guerrier then we slot in Slama in to one of those spots. Also noticed that We’d still have Cuddy if we don’t trade for Grienke so what we do then is trade Cuddy for prospects and or draft picks, or we could just leave him on the bench as 4th OF and then don’t sign Burrell.Also we just trade Capps and 1 Prospect for Bell
