Reds get Broxton. Relievers starting to go. Would like to see if Perkins or Burton bring us anything.

This is the guy I would have considered trading the most. However, the Twins do have him for another year, no reason to give him away.Papers...business papers.

I can handle standing pat on Span and even Willingham - but jesus was this guy a clear case of "sell high". Relievers are a bit unpredictable and he's been having a fantastic season. We just lost out on a major opportunity to turn pennies into dollars with this guy.

Also...what the Royals got for Broxton was the kind of haul that would've been nice for Burton. Hell, I'd have taken just one of those guys and a lesser spec.

Though Burton has another year of course. At this point I hope the Twins find a way to sign Burton to a 2-3 year extension after this season.
