Justin Morneau, Denard Span, Jared Burton and the rest of the Twins can breathe easy. No Twins were traded today. Here are the details…
- Glen Perkins was in high demand today, but it's not like GM Terry Ryan to extend a player and trade him that same season, ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick writes (Twitter links). The Twins would have had to be overwhelmed to trade the left-hander. The Dodgers made a late push for Perkins, but nothing materialized, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reports (on Twitter).
- Ryan said he wasn't close to trading Denard Span, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports (on Twitter). The Reds and Twins discussed a swap involving the center fielder.
- The Twins and Rangers discussed a deal involving Jared Burton.
Its been a disappointing trade deadline for the Twins.
I think I wrote this comment last year. Might as well save it for next year too. We’ll see what the offseason brings but I think I may have given the front office with terry ryan in charge too much credit. No one will end up losing their job no matter what happens this offseason because this may be the most inbred front office in the league. Got a bunch of one eyed cats running around and the owner of the house needs professional help ;-P
