Sigh... I'm not terribly surprised to read this but it's still disappointing. If the Twins are in rebuilding mode, just blow it up and give it the proper treatment. Put Morneau and Willingham on the block and be done with it.
I'm not against shying away from the FA market and slashing payroll with the clear message "we're building for 2015" but riding the fence is unacceptable. You either try to win or you blow up the roster. There's no point in trying to play both sides. It rarely (almost never) works.
This is all I've been saying, and asking admission to, since 2011. Now, 2 years have gone to waste in getting on with it, already.
I'm having a hard time thinking of an example when playing both sides has ever worked in recent times.
