Underperforming Clubs Could Offer Intriguing Trade Chips

Hader is a realistic target, IMO, who would have a huge impact.

Our bullpen stinks.  I don’t know why anybody still thinks Jorge Lopez is good.  Is it the same formula that’s telling people Pagan is good?  

He’s had one good half of baseball in his entire career.  The results since he’s gotten here haven’t been good, and the metrics don’t support anything (ERA and FIP are both in the neighborhood if 4.00+).  I don’t care about his spin rate, etc.  He can’t get hitters out.

People are constantly ripping on the offense, but they haven’t been as bad as people think.  This big issue right now is the ineptitude in holding a tight lead late in the game.

I think a full go with Lewis, Wallner and Julien would beef up the offense.

I believe it's much more likely, that we're going to be in a position to be "sellers" rather than "buyers". In any event, I doubt we'd be making a move for any of those players mentioned in the article. 

Respectfully disagree.  If the Twins were in a different division, they could possibly be sellers, but with being in the Central, there's little chance they would sell with the division in reach.

We have known since the schedule came out that the 1st half....especially Mid-May until the end of June would be the hardest part of the schedule.  The 2nd half is considerably easier.  The only way I see the Twins "selling" is if they go into absolute free fall mode, or if they suffer some major long term injuries.
