Comments on: Twins trade Josh Willingham and Kevin Correia http://aarongleeman.com/2014/08/13/twins-trade-josh-willingham-and-kevin-correia/ Baseball news, insight and analysis from Aaron Gleeman Wed, 29 Jul 2015 21:00:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.3 By: mlhouse http://aarongleeman.com/2014/08/13/twins-trade-josh-willingham-and-kevin-correia/comment-page-1/#comment-38916 Mon, 18 Aug 2014 16:41:00 +0000 http://aarongleeman.com/?p=115348#comment-38916 The biggest mistake that a sports team can make is to pretend that they can compete when they should be rebuilding. What makes it worse for the Twins is that their “competitive” moves are only low rent to begin with.

I have been calling for several years to bring up the young players, even if they are not “ready” instead of plugging known mediocrities into the lineup. Then maybe we would actually be making progress on creating a team that can contend, instead of stuck in a cycle of 90+ loss seasons with little to nothing to show for it.

Hmmm….none of your anecdotal examples involve a trade within the last 8 years.

That is a decision TR has never made.
