Another slant on rebuilding?

Why are we letting 20 million going unspent without improving the team for 2013 and beyond. At this point the list of desirable free agents has dwindled to a small few players. I'll suggest Kyle Lohse for example because he would have many takers if handed to them. I do understand that the Twins would have to forfeit their 2nd round pick to acquire him as well. Maybe a month or two ago there were better examples with no draft picks attached. However, if we could sign Loshe for say 2 years and around 20-25 million. We could offer him to any team willing to give a top level pitching prospect and a couple of mid-level players to offset our second round pick. We would have to be willing to eat say 80% of his contract to get any potential takers. If a team feels they are close to contending for a championship and could get Lohse for 2 years at 5 million they might listen? With this approach could we use our surplus budget to acquire some teams top prospect? Could something like this work, your thoughts?
