Since the Twins have already made one move, I figured we could have a similar thread to Vodka Dave's guess the record for the next 14 games threads. Except that this would be, "Who is next to be traded?"


Personally I think that the Hammer is the next to be traded.


How about the rest of Twins Daily community?

I think Kurt Suzuki is the next to go, as he has the most value and someone will want him by July 31st. Willingham and Correia might not go until August.

You are probably correct about Willingham, but they really need to focus on anyone who won't make it through waivers.

This makes the most sense, Suzuki would most likely be blocked after Aug 1st imo.

I'm thinking that it is going to be Suzuki. There's no way he'll get through in August and it looks like the Cards and O's are already interested:

If there's already a rumor that they're interested, I'm betting that there are probably talks already underway.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

I'd guess a bullpen piece. Duensing perhaps?

Suzuki is the obvoius name, so I'm going to have fun and say Eduardo Nunez, to Toronto, for pitcher Matt Boyd.

With the candlestick.

Hammer


Uh oh...what does that mean for you? Are we going to lose an All Star poster to another teams boards? Or will you change your moniker or will you refuse to accept the loss of Willingham and type through the pain and tears?

My vote is either Kevin Suzuki or Josh Duensing.

I think Suzuki goes before the deadline. I think Hammer goes in August as I somehow doubt that the Twins will get anything worthwhile for him. They'll roll the dice that he heats up as A ball utility player isn't what they want. KC, I don't know. He'd likely clear waivers, but the question at hand is whether there's a contender doing the PJ Walters, Pedro Hernandez rolodex callup for their 5th spot. They would likely give us something for KC, but I wouldn't expect it to be much. I wouldn't be shocked if Duensing or Fein got sent packing yet. Some team is typically looking for a reliever and will pay a higher ceiling/high risk A ball guy or maybe even a bit more for Fein. The Twins have serveral relievers in AAA deserving MLB time as well, so it would alleviate some other issues.

If the Twins wait until August and try to pass Correia through waivers but he gets claimed by a blocking club that won't offer a thing, do they have the constitution to just let him go for the betterment of the developing young pitchers?

I think they go big. Correia, Willingham, Suzuki and at least one bullpen arm (likely Duensing) go before August 1. Not sure of the order. Burton goes in August. Keep Fien.

I don't share the optimism that Willingham and Correia would clear waivers. Their contracts are small enough.
Papers...business papers.

I'll second the notion that Willingham and/or Correia wouldn't clear waivers. Remember, an oft injured and underperforming Willingham was claimed on waivers last year by the Orioles. His value is certianly a BIT higher than last year. A team looking for a bat (or relatively cheap back end starter) would likely claim them.

I hope Suzuki is the next to go. I really like the guy, but I fear the Twins are going to extend him and pay a premium for the privilege. Willingham, Correia should follow shortly thereafter.

Longer odds, but I could see Fien or Duensing being in a deadline deal as well.

Go to another board? No, when the time comes I'll drown my sorrows in a bucket of ice cream and spam TD with half asleep non-rhyming couplets in tribute to the greatest Twins hitter of the past 3 years. I'll swap in a new avatar but keep the moniker, both in Hammer's memory and because I have to.

I say Willihammer will start a blog entitled "Hammer was framed"
