Bringing in a new Twins Fan!!

I had a Thanksgiving Baby, Lucille Wynn Irwin!! I am a super excited father right now, just went back to my first day of work, and finally the Minnesota Twins make a move. We have all seen that after Upton signed with the Braves the Twins had to find a way to trade Span for option 2. We all know now that Span was definitely gone this year, I am glad we were able to get a lot of upside in a deal for Span. My biggest issue with this was that we are trading away a team friendly contract for someone who isn't going to help the Twins now. I thought he would be a great option of if we were going to trade him, we would be able to help the team today since his contract was very team friendly. Turns out that isn't the case!! I hope there is a lot more to the story unfolding for the Twins 2013, I am not hitting the panic button yet, as I am hoping there is a master plan for Terry Ryan. I can only hope that we can find a rotation with $30 million, I have a feeling we are going to be looking at getting Dempster, Saunders, Blanton, and Liriano, in which I don't like any of those options. I am going to be very frustrated when guys like Sanchez, McCarthy, Villanueva, Marcum, Haren are gone. I really hope Ryan surprises everyone and makes some kind of move. (Like moving Mauer to the Red Sox) Like I responded in the Red Sox for Mauer Forum, $53 million to spend, add a couple of top prospects, use the $53 million on Sanchez, McCarthy-- Scutaro, AJ That would be the bomb, will never happen, I am just dreaming.
