"I really like the Twins deal for Guthrie, Slowey may do well here and we need someone consistent in left field. Felix Pie doesn’t do it offensively and Nolan Reimold is decent but isn’t an everyday-line-up type guy yet. As for Koji, I’d like to see him stay and he’s also said that but he’s also said he wants to win. For him, I’d need to get a major league-ready pitcher as well, preferably a starter and a veteran at that as well as a prospect."
