Any reason for the Twins not to get involved in trade talks with Seattle for Jean Segura? Would be a great addition to the team and could slide Polanco over to 2nd base to fill that hole.

Segura has a full no trade clause.His fairly team friendly contract would have to get renegotiated. It would likely end up a team unfriendly contract. He would likely wait for Machado to sign before approving/renegotiating a contract

This might be reason to doubt Segura would be a good add

Is it 2020 yet?

You mean that he called out Gordon sluffing a ball in center and defended himself when Gordon attacked him in the clubhouse? Yeah, get that guy off my club...

Yeah, I don't want a better SS than Polanco who has a low OBP of .341 the past 3 yrs. It all depends on the price.Gordon, Gonsalves and an A ball prospect enough? Much more than that, I say sign Iglesias.

I meant that he may not be a good fit with our little Gordon :)

Might be good to have a player with a little fire and cares about winning.

Gordon would be included in a trade

Our "Gordon" still has to manage to earn a promotion to the big leagues before we would have to even think about it. I also would hate a guy for calling out a lazy player.
