Besides, they have some nice pitching prospects already, and look to add more in the midseason deals of Myers, Wandy Rodriguez and Carlos Lee.
I hope they take Buxton too, but it sounds like the owner wants a safer, quick to the majors pitcher. It really sounds like they will be taking Appel, who has great stuff but is very inconsistent and doesn't get the results that he should. Twins would love for Buxton to fall to them.
