7/18/2014 Sports Over Beers, episode 24. Jim Souhan on trade deadline for the Twins
Jim Souhan joins the Sports Over Beers podcast for some plausible Twins trade scenarios. This episode was recorded at Brothers in downtown Minneapolis, and is sponsored by Shock Top -- Live Life Unfiltered. The Twins should be trade-deadline sellers, the question is whether or not they’ll realize that in time. Which players should the Twins look to trade? Josh Willingham, Kendrys Morales, Kevin Correia, Kurt Suzuki? Who are some that aren’t getting talked about much who could or should be moved? Trade candidates or not: Sam Deduno? Trevor Plouffe? Casey Fien?
Souhan’s top-3 trade options. Can Josmil Pinto be the Twins catcher of the future or should the Twins extend Suzuki? -- Will Terry Ryan and Ron Gardenhire be here this time next year? What do you think about these roles: Paul Molitor manager, Tom Kelly bench coach. Robin Yount? -- The guys take a walk down memory lane with some obscure Twins from the past, including a story about a former ballplayer and potential drug dealer. How did the steroid era slip by largely unnoticed for a while? -- Outlining the Elbow Empowerment Program. What’s the next ‘Moneyball,’ or market inefficiency?
