Did Twins and Cards Discuss Rolen?

Buster Olney is a trusted source for baseball info if there ever was one.  Here's an excerpt from his blog today:

The Cardinals are shopping Scott Rolen. Heard on Thursday that the Twins and Cardinals are talking about a deal for Rolen, who is owed $33 million over the next three years.  The Cardinals presumably are asking for pitching in return, but because of the money involved and Rolen's injury history, they might not get a lot, because this is more of a salary dump.

On the other hand, Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune is obviously very close to the Twins.  He spoke to two Twins officials yesterday who said they've had no discussions about Rolen at all.  Could it be that those two officials didn't speak to the Cards about Rolen, but another member of the Twins' front office did?  It wouldn't be the first time baseball execs played coy with the media.
