Liriano on the block!?

49

According to MLBTR and the attached link, Liriano could be made available. I know we have a glut of pitching prospects ready to take over the majors but there has to be interest in a top flight pitcher who has survived Tommy John surgery... We have gotten a great look at him when he fanned us 11 times on June 11th. We have the talent to bring him in but looking at the cost of other pitchers who have moved teams who rate similiarly... Would we have to pillage the minors to bring him in and would it be worth it? He's got two years left on his contract and would be under no stress to be our ace right now... Especially if we can keep Teheran out of the deal... Am I the only one interested in the prospect package it would take to get him? I'm not the best at this but this is what I'd offer: Minor (or Beachy), Pastornicky, Schaffer, C level prospect... Would that even get a conversation started or do y'all think one of Delgado/Teheran/Vizcaino would have to be the cornerstone? Twins don't have much depth at SS in the minors and they would get two MLB ready players, a potential #2 and a project for someone they are not willing to offer a long term contract to... Another idea... If Texas wants to move Young and Minnesota wants to add him... could a three way deal be worked out where we get Liriano, Texas get prospects, and Twins get Young... This is my first fanshot so be gentle.
