    3. Sign Grienke, I know, idiotic according to many, but if you have Grienke, Appel, Gibson, Diamond, other, that's a top 10 rotation, imo.

    4. Draft the best pitcher in this year's draft....so Shipley, Stanek, or Stewart. All three are 1-3 years away (so they can replace Diamond if three years, or be the number 5 if sooner).
    This isn't exactly what I would do but clearly one of many strategies vastly superior to how the team is run now. I think we can disagree on the best ways to rebuild but I would be excited if the Twins had executed what you outlined here.

    Then don't trade him.
    Even with his liabilities, which people seem to love to point out, he is still a WAR positive player, making the league minimum.
