The Twins have sat pretty still this offseason. Is it finally time to take a stand?
The clamor for a right handed bat has been regarded, along with the bullpen (unnecessarily), as a spot we will surely need help with. Alexi Casilla has yet to prove himself and I am all for giving the man another shot to claim a starting spot on the daily roster, and I am much more thankful it will be Casilla on Opening Day at whichever position than LNP. What I am wondering is if it would make sense to put him down for a few more home runs (on the road of course).
I am extremely tired this evening and just saw that the Twins were on the list. What do you fellow fans think? Is it even worth perusing the Michael Young display, or is it bad news? Also, if a trade were to be made what is fair compensation. He comes in with a bloated contract, and since this could now seem like a nice salary dump for the Beltre loaded Rangers, do you think he's a trade cheap candidate.
**Update: It appears the main trade would be a salary swap for two underachieving (for what they're being paid, not ability) RH bats. It would help to get Cuddyer's salary off the books, but it would also mean taking on Young's bigger contract. The Rangers would be wise to trade him, but I think there is no reason to swap a guy who's off the books after this year for a guy who will continue to cost us in the future.
