    Another trade

    Twins trade to Brewers: Josh Willingham, Chris Parmelee, and Chris Colabello
    Brewers trade to Twins: Norichika Aoki

    Why the Twins should do it: Aoki will be 31 which is not really young but technically younger than 34, he could leadoff, steal bases. Clears two roster spots.

    Why the Brewers should do it: Aoki figures to be the odd man out in an outfield of Braun - Gomez - Khris Davis. They are looking for 1b bats and have been rumored to be interested in Corey Hart but might get outbid. Nobody will be outbidding them for Parmelee or Colabello.

    Although I have analyzed this post quite thoroughly and can't find the smoking gun. There has to be a Nishioka joke hidden somewhere in between the lines.

    Moving away from the Twins...

    Understanding that Boston will probably be in the market for a New CF and the Angels most definitely need starting pitching, maybe a deal involving Peter Bourjos and Jake Peavy could help both clubs. I am sure there would have to be some more moving parts involved, but those two would seem like the focal point of this imaginary trade.

    Twins trade to Rockies: Michael Tonkin, Chris Colabello
    Rockies trade to Twins: Josh Rutledge, 24, middle infielder

    Why the Twins should do it: they need middle infielders that might hit. Rutledge's inconsistency to this point may or may not be due to issue with his leg kick, which if Dozier is any indication might be something the Twins coaching staff could solve.

    Why the Rockies should do it: they need bullpen arms and bats and are trying to get them on the cheap

    Vogelsong is actually a free agent right now. The Giants declined his $6.5 mil option (and if you look at his 2013 stats, you will understand why).

    But think of how many lively debates about framing we'd miss out on...

    Angels probably should have adhered to your trenchant analysis. They've come away with David Freese instead.

    Atlanta wants out from under his contract and will eat part of it to get rid of him.

    Glen Perkins for Austin Jackson

    I would see if King Theo would take Berrios and Thorpe for Starlin Castro. It looks like they are moving their ETA to 2016 and a salary dump may be attractive.

    I'm guessing that would be a no-go from Detroit, but i'd do it in a heartbeat.

    Trenchant is way to kind, but I thought Bourjos had more value than that. Bourjos and Grichuk to the Cards for Freese and Salas... WTF?

    But what the hell do I know?

    Could we convince the Cardinals to take Plouffe for some useful starting pitching?

    Tigers are said to be shopping A-Jax. Can't imagine we would have to add too much. A-Jax had a down year (mostly due to injury) and Perkins is one of the final pieces for them and is on a sweetheart deal.

    In a Glen Perkins to the Detroit Tigers trade I would request Porcello and Rondon. If they scoff at that, I walk away from the table.

    If I am trading an All-Star to a division rival, it is necessary to get absolute full value and it doesn't matter to me if he is a relief pitcher.

    Take it or leave it.

    I like the Perkins for Webster deal. Or Henry Owens. I also like matt Barnes quite a bit 9as a 2nd piece).

    The whole point of trading Perkins should be to bring in someone that is under contract longer than Perkins. Jackson and Porcello are FA's in 2 years.

    The Blue Jays are putting together a package for the power-righty from the Cubs. What could we offer in a deal to get him outside our top 3?

    I'd propose something like this as a starting place.

    Hicks, Rosario, May, Gibson, Vargas, Hudson Boyd for Samardzija and Castro.
