Would you want him? If so, what do you think you would give up to get him? Talk around Minneapolis is that they might look to move him. sorry if this is the wrong place but I saw an xavier nady thread and others so I thought this would be a place to start.

I would under no circumstance want this guy on the NYY, I don't care how well he's pitching for you guys. I totally expect to flat out murder this guy when we face him this series. He won't make it out of the 4th inning. You heard this not so bold prediction here first.

His WHIP is over 1.5, his ERA+ is 85, he is old and not good we don't need him.

They seem to like retread pitchers that the Twins get rid of.

You wont get any legit prospects for him

The best thing to do is DFA.

No thanks. If you cut him I wouldn't have a problem signing him to minor league contract as an insurance option, but I wouldn't take on his salary (even though I have no clue what his salary is) and give him a roster spot.

Washington may want him, but that's about it.

No need for him on the Twins. No need for him on the Yanks.
