Minnesota Twins trade rumors: Twins to be sellers at deadline

The Minnesota Twins are trying to turn their season around and contend for at least a Wild Card spot in the postseason but things are just too Topsy-turvy for there to be any sort of stability going on.

It’s for this reason that the Twins are likely to be sellers at the trade deadline this month as their hopes of contending have faded and the valuable pieces they have are better off being sold than being kept.

According to MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger, the Twins are in a tough spot right now and general manager Terry Ryan is prepared to toss in the towel at the halfway point in order to get pieces that make Minnesota a contender next year.

General manager Terry Ryan said he’ll listen to all offers before the Trade Deadline, and he acknowledged the Twins have been struggling.

“We’re in a tough spot right now and we’ve been in a tough spot for four years,” Ryan said. “So you have to listen. And that’s what we do.”

This is a real bummer to Twins fans who feel like the 2010 trip to the postseason was eons ago — and it indeed feels like that thanks tot he losing ways that have infected the team recently. There’s upside though, but the likes of Josh Willingham, Kurt Suzki and even pitchers such as Glenn Perkins and others may end up on new teams before August rolls around.
