Fixing your Minnesota Twins
Step 1: Trade Morneau, Span and Willingham this offseason.
-These three players are nice pieces to a Championship squad, but unfortunately the Twins do not have the other pieces to win one right now. Therefore, they need to set themselves back a year or two and let some younger guys develop. Trading Morneau, Span and Willingham not only gets them Starting Pitching in return, but it also allows the Twins to save money at a few positions and allow young players a chance to prove themselves. Chris Parmalee will get a chance to man 1B at a reduced price. The 3 outfield positions would be an all out battle royal between Revere, Mastroiani, Hicks, Benson, Arcia, Carson. They could use some of this freed up money to add another impact bat like they did in the OF with Willingham this year.
Step 2: Add Starting Pitching
- The Twins WILL have some money to spend on an elite Starting Pitcher, now who that is, is the question mark.
Step 3: Gardenhire's time is up
-I like Gardy, I really do, but it's time for a change. I don't believe he has lost the team or anything along those lines, but I believe a managerial shakeup would do some good things for this team as a whole.
Step 4: Find a SS.
