    From the "tweet" (JHC I hate everything about that stupid device), it appears that Jon Freekin Heyman made the, uh, suggestion to the "Twins person." How else would he know?

    WTF is Jon Heyman doing suggesting ANYthing to ANYbody on the Minnesota Twins staff? Isn't Jon Heyman a reporter? Reporters try to MAKE news now?

    "Hey, Twins person, anything happening on Willingham?" Fine.

    "Hey, Twins person, you should trade Willingham!!" GTFOOH.

    Stick to getting your insider info from Boras, you clown.

    What's Willingham's WAR? I bet when you calculate the average cost of WAR times his WAR = more than twice his contract value. So to get = value we need to do better than double his value just to break even in a trade.

    The reason to trade Willingham is because he could land a significant bounty for this team. It would be the first smart, "sell high" move the team has made since.....what? AJ?

    I kinda hate this sort of thread. Granted, if someone's willing to give you a dozen gold-plated A+ prospects for Willingham, you trade him; and if someone's willing to give you Jim Thome's knees and a bag of practice balls, you don't.

    Duh.

    How about instead of asking "should we trade him!?" (which is a stupid question), ask "should we trade him for x, y, and/or z?"

    Well, they sold high with Santana, unfortunately Smith got raped.

    In terms of timing, you're right. So maybe Willingham would be the first successful "sell high" deal since AJ? Could go a long way to this team's future and we're going to kick ourselves when he goes back to being a 400 AB player who can't stay on the field.

    Sorry, gave you the wrong impression, I agree with you. If it turned out the way the Santana deal could have then it would put this team in much better stead. Not that Hammer will fetch the offers Santana did but he would fetch something attractive enough to work with, at least at the present. If some good young prospects get dangled the Twins have to take it.

    Yep. I got called out. But, to be fair (and to balance out my clear laziness), I didn't start the thread. Does that help?

    Off topic of thread alert!

    Can you explain why? From the first time I heard about it and every time since, it makes my skin crawl. To the extent that I have no real good idea why it should be so off-putting, even for myself.
