You trade anyone not named Phillip Hughes (and even he is arguable). You get younger by the shear fact that Liriano is basically replacing Pettitte. He's been that good except coming back from Tommy John.
I know we wouldn't likely make a good fit for the Twins with so many of our key trading chips being "almost ready pitchers" but would some package involved Alonso interest the Twins?
