Yea, I don't remember specifics (or even if specifics were named).
I do remember the Twins saying that since Span was signed to such a club friendly contract, they were in no hurry to trade him and the trade price was going to be through the roof. With that attitude, they are probably going to have him for the duration of his contract. He's a nice player, not an impact guy.
I think they wanted 3 prospects for Span.. Maybe my memory is wrong though..
You got to think that if the Twins were being reasonable, Walt would've gotten the trade done. I think Walt would've given them Cingrani plus (Heisey or Stubbs) at bare minium.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
