Alright first Twins trade Torii Hunter to the angels and Johan Santana soon to be traded to probably to red sox or yankees.And when minnesota trades guys they get crappy guys for them.And then the vikings trade Randy Moss to the Raiders and get who crap except they have adrian peterson.Why because all minnesota's owners or managers are cheap and dont like to spend money.Timberwolves have traded kevin garnett to the celtics and now the T-wolves are7 and 35


First off - the twins didn't trade Hunter they let him walk as a free agent.

When Minnesota does trade guys it is for mainly 1 of 2 reasons - get rid of a superstar is who unhappy (Moss, Garnett) or to get something instead of nothing (possibly Santana).

Yes, the owners are cheap (letting Hunter go and probably refusing to sign Santana if they don't trade him).

In a lot of the trades, they do get young guys/prospects/draft picks so getting something is better than getting nothing and they also get rid of unhappy players. Unhappy players can cause your team to be even worse than they actually are due to bad chemistry.

It is always a crap shoot when trading a proven superstar for prospects; sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

The twins have invested long-term in Cuddyer (bad spelling I know), Morneau and Mauer. By letting Hunter (and possibly Santana) go, it allowed them to keep those guys. Sometimes, signing 3 very good players is better to taking all your money and signing 1 guy.

Imagine that.....another guy gets his butt handed to him after 1 argument and guess what....gives up arguing. At least have the stones to forfeit if you don't have the cajones to finish the TD.

Don't need to waste any more of my time with this "genius".

Wow, you mean the guy losing this bad didn't make another argument?

With the trade of Santana yesterday (pending contract extension) he had a perfect argument to get a lot of votes. The Twins took the 3rd best offer they had and got basically minor-leaugers in return. He probably could have won this TD just based on that trade alone.

All I can say is this guy is a QUITTER and a founding member of the Fannation Idiots!
