If only Minnesota would bring up Liriano and demote Livan to sweeping dugouts at the Metrodome after games we wouldn't be discussing The Chi Sox playing in October.
Wouldn't it be a great story watching the Twins make a run to the playoffs with Scott Baker (legit) being the elder statesman of a staff that didn't have starter over like 26?
Latest grumblings out of Minnesota from MLBtraderumors.com :La Velle E. Neal III and Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune have the latest Twins buzz.
* The Twins would like to trade Boof Bonser to make room for Francisco Liriano. The Giants and Rangers might be interested.
* Targets for the Twins: relief help, third base, and second base.
* Talks for Adrian Beltre are not dead. The Mariners are eyeing Nick Blackburn, Scott Baker, Kevin Slowey, Glen Perkins, and Denard Span. The Twins aren't biting. Sounds like the Mariners want a premium arm for Beltre from the Twins or Giants, but those teams see it as more of a salary dump.
Time to get Liriano?
