I think OP makes a lot of sense and I can see some of that coming to fruition.
I would certainly be OK with trading Lynn, Rodney, Duke, Reed, and even Odo.
My opinion on Gibson has changed. I think we should keep him, maybe even extend him. The Twins have a lot of time invested in Gibson. We've had to wade through years of frustration and mediocrity and it seems like he has finally figured out how to pitch at this level. Why should some other team reap the benefits of what could be Gibson's best years when it was the Twins that had to endure all the growing pains.
Rotation: Berrios, Gibson, Romero, Gonsalves, May/Santana(?)
Also: The Twins have to be greatly disappointed with what they are getting from Logan Morrison, practically an automatic out. 4 solo HR, 2 2-R HR. Hindsight is 20/20, but does anyone believe we would have been worse off with Vargas in place of Morrison? It is getting close to the point in the season where, if he turns it around, who cares, it won't benefit the team unless we can entice someone into a deadline trade for a LH power bat.
