More Lowell stuff

Per the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Twins are apparently interested in Mike Lowell:

The Twins, though, want the Marlins to pick up a good part of the $16 million that Lowell, 31, is guaranteed for the next two years. The Twins are expected to offer pitching (Kyle Lohse, J.C. Romero and/or Scott Baker) and could make a deal by the second week in December. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Lowell is the Marlins' highest-salaried player. Retaining Lohse would cost the Twins about $4 million for next season.

So here's what I'm thinking...

Get the Twins involved in the deal. Have Lowell go to Minnesota, with Texas paying most of his salary. Keep Blalock, send Joaquin Arias to Florida instead, along with, say, Josh Rupe, plus Scott Baker from Minnesota. J.C. Romero comes to Texas, along with Beckett.

That makes sense, doesn't it? And best of all, Hank stays in Texas...
