Chat: Chat with Jerry Crasnick - SportsNation - ESPN: "Andy (Sioux Falls, SD)
Jerry, after the Twins lost on Cliff Lee they have been pretty silent in trade rumors. Is a deal for starting pitching still likely?
Jerry Crasnick (12:16 PM)
Andy, The Twins are sniffing around on a starter and perhaps some bullpen help, but I was told yesterday not to be surprised if they 'do nothing' at the deadline. Like a lot of teams, they're finding the prices on pitching help to be extraordinarily high. Unless the price comes down between now and July 31, a lot of teams are hesitant to make any kind of acquisition."
