It was a big "JUMP" for the FO to take on the additional payroll by signing Donaldson. There is "no way" they take on any additional payroll, especially that much. You can't give up 5 players with 6 years of team control plus Rosario. Betts is a lot better than Rosario, but not that much. You're better off trading for pitching.

I wouldn't be opposed to Betts/Price for Rosario/Larnach/Duran.Might not be my first choice, but I wouldn't hate it.

 

They've got to use their prospects to get something at some point.Maybe wait and see who's doing good for a mid-season trade.I wouldn't make any prospect untouchable for the right person.

Agreed, but I don't think that this is the right trade to make. Hopefully better trade options become available closer to mid-season or sooner. I am definitely not against the Twins making a trade for a good pitcher, I just want them to to be smart about it.
