With the news coming out of Minnesota that Liriano is un happy with still being in the minors, or at least his agent is, would you make a package that Minnesota couldn't resist making. Liriano is definitely the type of pitcher this team lacks and we could match up pretty nicely.
Lets say we throw in one or both of Blalock/Bradley, and two top five prospects. They need a righty DH/RF and also they could use an upgrade from Lamb at third, even though Buscher has done alright but could benefit from the minors a little longer. Right there they get two upgrades for their current roster with power bats. Bradley could walk and they could recieve two picks so I think that would intice them. Blalock has a relatively cheaper option that is worth picking up and if he could regain full value then he is worth two picks.
This is where it gets tuff, the two top five picks. They are gonna demand a pitcher back. Feliz, Id imagine is untouchable and Hurley shouldn't go anywhere because this team needs a home grown talent. This team owes it's fans at least that. So beyond that who could we include. It is gonna be hard for Minni to tell its fans that they traded Liriano for anything less than a teams top pick, right? But this farm is sooo deep. I think they want a more high cieling, developing pitcher. A guy like Beaven, Main, Kiker, or Font could be included. Hell my man crush Harrison could be part of a deal if they are looking for a more quicker option for their rotation. I think they are looking for more of a A, AA type pitcher though because they have a good major league staff.
The other minor leaguer would have to be Andrus. They badly need an upgrade for the future at SS.
So after all that, her is the poll. Would you trade Blalock and Bradley, two of Beaven/Main/Kiker/Font, and Elvis for Liriano? Cruz could slide in right for the remainder of the year as a last audition, and Vazquez and Duran can man third until a better option comes along. Maybe we could even snag Buscher away from them. I like him because I've gotten to see him rip it up in Ra Cha Cha. Also we wouldn't be selling the farm for a useless fix but rather a major key piece that this team has always lacked, a true ace.
