What are the Twins going to do with Denard Span? John Bonnes gives reasons for trading and keeping the centerfielder. He notes that the Twins have depth in the outfield, and could use him to trade for pitching -- something they desperately need.
Meanwhile, Twins general manager Terry Ryan has been watching some of baseball's elite prospects in the Arizona Fall League. He's also there for MLB's GM meetings, which begin Wednesday. Nine years ago the Twins made a trade during the GM meetings that gave them Francisco Liriano and Joe Nathan. They would love for that to happen again.
