The Twins did what they had to do by trading two players they could lose after the season. If they wish to trade Dozier (a mistake) and Santana (not sure about this), the off-season would bring them more of what they need. Funny that neither trade brought in any offense which is what they need. They are (close to) last in runs scored, nobody knows how to move runners over and they are horrible with runners in scoring position.

Twins are 10th of 15 teams in runs scored.
They are 13th of 15 in earned runs against.

They need both, sure, but they need pitching worse.
