All these same guys would have still been moved at the August deadline.
Except Pressley, who still had team control.
The only difference would be the Twins get a lot less back, due to being restricted to trading with the claiming team.

They didn't sell off the nucleus though, just the guys who were going to soon be gone anyway.

 

So, can it be both?

Moving the deadline makes it harder for the trading team to better in the future. I completely disagree with this idea. I'd move it to mid-August, and only have one deadline. You get two more weeks with your good players, you get rid of the silly waiver deadline, and bad teams can still improve their odds in future years.
