The Angels just got Pujols... They also have just signed C.J. Wilson in Free Agency. They have Torii Hunter under contract for 18.5 million and Vernon Well still under contract for over 26.6 million this year. Now that they have made these moves, they might be very willing to get rid of one of these contracts, right?
Most of us in MN would love to get Torii Hunter back, as he could fill in as our RF and be a fan favorite again. I think it's possible that we make a play for him and obtain a good/great prospect like Peter Bourjos or Jean Segura, a stud 2B they have in their system. We could also ask for a SP prospect like Garrett Richards.
I propose this trade:
Torii Hunter, Garrett Richards, and Fabio Martinez.
What does that look like to everyone? We would get rid of a good set-up man, a young exciting LF that could grow in their system, and a future solid RP, who may or may not become a Closer.
We would get a huge contract who plays RF, a stud SP who could be a future #2, and a minor league RP with very good stuff.
Am I crazy? Would this work? What does everyone think?
