Trading Johan Santana: Another Bump as Twins Head Downhill

Ken minnesota fanContributor IJanuary 30, 2008

What is wrong with the Twins? 

They are giving away Johan Santana after losing star player Tori Hunter, and they had the thought of trading Luis Castillo.  These are three of our top players!

Now we are left with hometown hero Joe Maur and Canadian slugger Justin Morneau.  

Luckily, we are getting Francisco Liriano, but will that be enough?

I have the utmost respect for the Twins organization and truly admire Maur and Morneau, who's my favorite Twin.  It will, however, be strange without '48' in centerfield and without '54' manning the mound.

I’ll still root for you, Twins, but in the future, please make more sensible deals with our best players.
