    A team such as Tampa would consider a trade like this insane.
    Why would Tampa give up one of their top starters for a A prospect from the Twins.
    Tampa develops their own Star Talent. Andrew Friedman is the GM, not Bill Smith.
    No one will give up a Pitcher who is the caliber of David Price for some A ball prospects, no matter how high their upside.

    It's insane and stupid because the Rays would not in a million years trade Sano for Price... and the Twins should not in a million years trade Sano for anyone else on that list.

    Followed by a kick to the nads, so stupid it hurts, yet strangely I can't look away.

    Funny, one argues it is stupid to discuss because NO WAY TB would do it, while others argue it is too stupid for the Twins to consider. That's why it is actually worth talking about.....btw, I agree, no way TB does that trade straight up......


    lastly, advice you can all take or leave, but calling people stupid is no way to have a conversation with them....
    Lighten up Francis....

    Yeah basically this, also the Mariners would never trade King Felix for Sano. Nor would it make any sense for the Twins to.
    This thread is quite silly to be honest, if you wanted to ask "Should the Twins try to trade Sano for a top pitching prospect" then maybe it would have legs, but prospect for prospect swaps are extremely rare.

    Actually, I thought you did a nice job of saying the idea was stupid, that was aimed at others.....
