    I think this makes sense, also. The Twins have a wealth of young pitching in their system and Liriano waiting to take Baker's spot in the rotation. They also have Juan Castro at short and issues in the outfield. Throw in Krivsky's connection, too many middle infielders, and disenchantment with Kearns and...well, where there is smoke...maybe a trade.

    How about this trade idea then? (I know everyone is sick of my trade ideas but lets focus here):

    Kearns, Aurilia, Valentin, White for Baker, Rincon/Guerrier, Bonser

    I'd trust Krivsky to take his pick of Twins prospects, but Baker and Bonser would not be on my list.

    I'm not sold completely on a guy like Baker, but his minor league numbers resemble much Aaron Harang's.

    Quite possibly the most insightful post I've ever read on these boards.

    I think that is way too much. Minny doesn't need a catcher anyway and if they got a catcher it would be someone who can hit lefties (not Valentin) to spell Mauer. Aurilia would be perfect b/c he could play for Morneau against lefties.
    And since when did we get so picky about pitching prospects? Baker would be our 2nd or 3rd best pitching prospect and would be a welcome addition. HE'S ONLY 23! Do we expect him to be blowing teams away right now? Many SPs that age aren't even in the majors.

    OK then, take out Valentin and would you do the deal?

    The only thing that worries me about that deal it, as of right now, it appears that Kearns might have finally put it all together. I like the prospects of Baker, but I don't know if Rincon would be available since they lost some of their bridge to Nathan when Romero went to Anaheim. I wonder if Aurilia and someone else small would get it done for Baker alone, since Minny is dying for Liriano to get into the rotation and their offense is dying right now especially in the IF. Then we can try and trade LaRue for some relief help.

    After watching the Twins at the plate over the weekend, I would think they are shopping for some offensive help. They could find themselves looking way up to the White sox, Tigers, and Indians by the end of the month. They have plenty of pitching depth and could afford to make a deal.

    I agree. Kearns does look good lately and I would hate to see him go. So, if I were Wayne, I'd offer Rich for Baker straight up. Maybe even throw in a prospect. Minny is wealthy of young arms anyway, so Baker's loss wouldn't be that big, especially with Liriano waiting to get into the rotation. And the Twins could really use some offense and Rich could supply them with that.

    And as for getting relief help, the Mets could help us with that. They've got guys like Heilman, Bradford, and Julio in the pen that could help us. If I were Wayne, I'd see what it would take to get Heilman and one of Bradford/Julio.

    Looks like we're all in agreement and I like that Mets thought. Hopefully Krivsky is a member of this site.

    I'd be very surprized if Aurillia would be enough to pry Baker, but it doesnt hurt to dream. The twins may be as deperate for offense as we are for pitching
