The Minnesota Twins were one of many Major League Baseball teams that had a quiet trade deadline last week. While there were several reasons why this could have been, the fact remains that it was pretty a boring season across the league.
Even for a rebuilding team like the Twins, there was an opportunity to move past a roster that is on its way to a third straight 90-loss season and build for an exciting future that includes many of the game's top prospects.
A lot of scenarios could be considered "video game" moves (as only a computer-generated general manager would be crazy enough to agree to them), but they weren't far fetched enough that real life counterpart Terry Ryan couldn't have had them tossing in his head leading up to the trade deadline.
With the Twins sitting on their hands (outside of trading the immortal Drew Butera to the Los Angeles Dodgers), it's fair to ask what could have happened and what should have happened leading up to the deadline.
