As far as I'm concerned every player (including Mauer if he would waive his no trade clause) is on the block so I have no trouble with the idea of trading Willingham.
BUT it is all about getting value back. With Willingham, I have to wonder if the significant difference between his stats at home and his away stats won't somewhat decrease his value to other teams. I also have to wonder if he doesn't have some unique value in Minnesota just in demonstrating to other players in the system (majors and minors) that it isn't impossible to hit well at TF.
In other words, does he have significantly more value in Minnesota than he would elsewhere? And does that affect the type of return that could be expected for him?
