    Do the Collapse

    We all know it's coming. We all sniff it on the horizon--be it now or the middle of May--the fierce losing skid that signals the end. When RS and RA go careening in opposite directions and fans pull out their football jerseys and Street and Smith college ball guides.

    So what's the first white-flag move by Krivsky?

    If I had to guess, I'd say M2 was psychic in his guess of Kearns to Minnesota. They're finally getting it together pitching-wise, but they still could use another bat. It's my pick as the bellwether move: Kearns for _______ (hopefully two arms) from Minnesota.

    What's your white-flagger?

    Having watched WK in action to this point I would have no idea.

    Love the thread title.

    Honestly, hopefully Krivsky entered the season with a list of guys he's willing to move as soon as he gets his price.

    Absolutely. But I don't think those two will be first out the door. Teams will want more of an assurance that these two will stay healthy and productive--so probably around the deadline, if at all.

    But the point of the thread is to name the first deal, the deal that throws other moves into motion.

    Don't count on getting Baker for Kearns - he outpitched Mussina on Friday night and if he registers a few more quality starts - the expectation will be that he will be Radke's replacement in 2007. Liriano is a stud and the Twins won't trade him, either.
    So what do you think a suitable offer for Kearns would be? How about Morneau?

    If they're smart and Kearns is OPSing @ 1.000 in mid-May, they'd be very wise to consider Baker for Kearns.

    If Kearns is OPSing 1.000 in mid-may, why on earth would we trade him for a prospect whose ceiling is a 3-4 starter? Baker is over-valued by the Twins, just as Radke was. Don't undervalue Kearns. If you must trade him, you can get far more talent than Baker.

    At least he's shown the willingness to actually do something, even if I'm not universally in favor of what he does, so yeah, we could see a lot of churn this year. Really, my list of "I'd be shocked if he was traded this year" guys numbers less than ten, and that's for the entire organization.

    Because we have a rotation consisting of a #2 and three #5 starters, plus a guy who has no business in the majors.
