This little tidbit in the Minny Star-Tribune this morning:
"The Twins spent late Tuesday and early Wednesday talking with the Texas Rangers about a deal for third baseman Hank Blalock during Major League Baseball's winter meetings.
The Twins would give up pitching in return, which could involve lefthander J.C. Romero. The Twins are trying to hold on to righthander Kyle Lohse, so they might include righthander Scott Baker in the deal. There are also some indications that the deal could be expanded to include outfielder Kevin Mench and/or a third team."
Hmmm... I like Baker, but I think we'd want a little more than Baker and Romero for Blalock. At least I would. I'm glad to hear the Twins want to hold on to Lohse. They can keep that master of suck.
The story goes on to add: "Some teams have expressed interest in Hunter, possibly Texas as part of a deal for Blalock and Mench. Ryan, as he has all week, maintained the club is not looking to deal Hunter."
This sounds like unfounded speculation to me, but I'd love to have Tori patrolling center for us.
