This continues the dialy trade talk updates for the Twins and of action around the league that influences the Twins trade moves, up until the deadline. You can find all the older updates [URL="http://tenthinningstretch.blogspot.com/search/label/Twins%20Trade%20Talk%202012"]here[/URL], in reverse chronological order. This is the last of the talk. Potential trade action will happen up till 3:00 PM today. I will post a Twins Trade Deadline Retrospect after the dust settles tonight or tomorrow (probably tomorrow because I want to look at potential reactions) and will pubish August waiver trade talk as it comes. Here is the Twins Trade Talk the past 24 hours or so:

    I think the Nationals have had discussions about picking up a Carroll-esqe player.

    No playoff wins since 2004, 99 loss season last year, 14 gms under this year and the feeling from a lot of people is things are ok, a bandaid hear and there we'll be ok? I can't help be a lot depressed.
