Willingham is a great answer. I still think Joe Mauer has alot of value especially if the Twins were to help out a team with his salary. I think Glen Perkins would also bring back a very very quality player. Lefthanded reliever that throws 95 and is signed for a reasonable salary over the next several years.. pretty enticing. Look at what the A's got for Andrew Bailey! I think Perk is just as good if not better. Or do I need to remind everyone what the Nationals got for their closer at the deadline a few years ago.....
If the Twins can add contract relief to the equation... It's Mauer without question.

It was Willingham....we missed the boat on that one. As usual.
Yeah... by not trading a guy just a few months into his deal we missed the boat. How do you expect to convince guys to sign here long-term without NTC's if you trade them away at the midpoint of the first year of a multi year deal?
Willingham's value hasn't plummeted... and could still be traded in the future.

Mauer really has little value beause that contract is restricted to 3 maybe 4 teams in the majors. His value is in the number of fans that he brings in to Target field and we NEED him if we want to keep attendance over 40 grand a game.

Morneau is definitely not higher than most of those guys. 1yr/14 mil is not good value even if he returns to elite form. 3 years of span or 5 years of revere for very cheap is way more valuable. The same could be argued for the 6-10 guys
Note not a pitcher in the bunch, though Berrios would be soon.

Doumit...has shown that he can catch and continues to hit.
Mauer will always be in demand but basically unaffordable.
Morneau...teams are going to wish they had overpayed for him in July.
Perkins...has a reasonable contract and can be a lefty or possible closer.
Revere is over Span right now. Span's value is when a team is desparate for a replacement player. Twins missed it not trading him in July.
Deduno has come out of nowhere...but would have to be packaged with, say, a Plouffe or Parmelee.
