    Buyers or Sellers

    The Twins are playing pretty well this season, so should they be buyers, sellers or stand pat at the trading deadline?
    They could use another starter and a couple of bullpen arms. Maybe a bat as well, although they have Vargas and Park who can come up and contribute (Vargas is up now, but may go back down).

    Sellers if the price is right, otherwise stand pat. We need to continue to bolster our young talent, but not give players away for relatively nothing while we are somewhat competitive.

    Santana and Dozier should net substantial return, two players I doubt we re-sign long term.

    hard for a fan base to be happy being sellers when their team is in 1st place, so we'll have to see where we are in a few weeks

    but we're not built to be competitive in the playoffs should be somehow get there either

    We picked a SS #1 overall in the draft....does that make someone like Nick Gordon trade bait?

    I don't think so. I believe this is insurance for Dozier's pending FA departure. Gordon slides over to 2B and Lewis takes over at SS.

    I think this year we should stand pat and promote from within. But if we do become buyers, we need all the bullpen help we can get.

    The Twins have announced that they will attempt to bring in some pitching at the deadline this year. They have some decent talent in the middle of their farm system, so they should be able to make a couple of moves without hurting the long-term plan for the team.

    I'd love to see Neshek back in our pen, if not too expensive. But that's the problem, everybody needs pitching...I don't want Sonny Gray or Brad Hand for the very reason it will be a sellers market

    Twins are in negotiations to acquire Braves' starter Jamie Garcia. Also, Bartolo Colon is considering retirement. If his next start goes poorly, he will walk away from baseball.
