This thread title drastically needs the qualifier; might, could, or "are thinking about trading."

"Twins considering trading Liriano," the actual TITLE of the article linked, is much more accurate than this thread title.

It might actually make some sense for the Twins to trade him. Especially if they are not going to pay up when he becomes a FA. I bet they can get a huge haul from the Yankees.

I like how the author of the article says that just because they made a poor trade when they moved Santana, that they shouldn't make this move. What, because of one bad trade, they're never supposed to move a soon-to-be departing free agent again?

Sounds like some of the posters here.

That's only because, "What's The Score?" is the only sub-forum he ever posts in.

He probably doesn't know there is more to the site.

this could be a dynamite move for the Twins. i bet they could get the Yankees to give them the moon with everyone from NY seemingly on the ledge right now about their SP situation. the problem for the Twins is whether it means they'd be giving up on this year because it'd give them a very iffy rotation, uncertain future abt. Morneau's ability to return/remain healthy, and a huge question mark for their middle INF production.

If the Twins trade him, I wouldn't be surprised. They have so much money locked away in Mauer that they can't keep every prospect who is about to turn FA.

Why on earth would they trade him now? Play out the 1st half and see where you are at. I mean, if they are within shouting distance of the division or in 1st place why would you trade him when you still have control through 2012. He is the closest thing to a #1 they have, all the rest of their guys are mid to back end rotation starters.

He had injury problems in the minors, he's already had Tommy John surgery, and he has a violent delivery. Also relies too much on his slider which most likely contributes to his injuries. He had a good year last year, might as well capitalize on it now.

I have to agree with you. They can't trade Liriano right now to start the season. The Twins have 40,000 seats to fill at the still newly minted Target Field. If you trade the ace of your staff, regardless of the haul of prospects you could get, the perception is that you would be mailing in the 2011 season. This is especially true considering they let their entire bullpen and middle infield from 2010 walk via free agency.
