    Twins Interested In Sanchez, Capps, Grabow?

    The Pirates, who are apparently not done dealing yet, have engaged in trade discussions with the Twins regarding a number of players, major league sources said Thursday. Twins are interested in a trio of Pirates: Freddy Sanchez, Matt Capps and John Grabow. Twins GM Bill Smith did not discuss specifics, but he confirmed that he's open to making deals.
    "We still need to make this club better, whether that comes from the minor leagues or outside the organization," Smith said. "We're still looking to do that."

    As Morosi says, the Pirates have already been aggressive sellers, dealing Nate McLouth and Eric Hinske. And the sale isn't about to end according to one of Morosi's sources who says the Pirates "are talking to everyone."


    The Twins, who have been reluctant to take on salary, would have to get creative or change their stance to add Sanchez, who makes $6.1MM this year and will likely make $8MM in 2010. Grabow, a free agent after the season, would likely be easier to acquire than Capps, who's under team control through 2012.

    The Pirates are going to be a AAA team before this year is over.

    the sad part is teams usually do this to get better in the future. The pirates KEEP doing this...their future has never come.

    The Twins better find a way to improve or there will be alot of unhappy people now that they have built the new stadium. I could see them trying to get in some players to try to be successful for the 2010 season.
