    the rangers have a a few fa next year in Young and Nelson cruz. they can let them go and save money if they have players ready to step in and play. who does that amount to one of our OF prospects and Burton and someone else Herman????

    I dont think they would. That would be selling awfully low. I think they might trade those guys....just not this offseason, and give them time to rebound after down years last year and trade them at the trade deadline.

    Hicks is months away and fills a need cheaply while Morneau fills a need. I wouldn't do it if I was Texas though but I disagree with the HELL NO comment. Holland is exactly what this team needs but I don't think the Twins have the right stuff to pull off the trade now that Span is gone.

    Holland pitched like an ace in the minors but hasn't done a whole lot in 3 ML seasons... I wouldn't mind aquiring him, but he's also about to get expensive and could in theory be gone when the new core of hitters is arriving...

    The fact that he's struggled is the only reason that he's remotely available.

    Home ERA - 5.34
    Road ERA - 4.08

    In what world is the following expensive and how will he be gone when the hitters are arriving? I hope the new hitters arrive in the next 6 years.
    3.2M
    5.4M
    7.4M
    10M
    11M option
    11.5M option
