Delmon Young

The Twins are willing to trade left fielder Delmon Young following the emergence of rookie outfielder Denard Span this season.

-per one of today's BP articles

Although its just speculation, I find this pretty interesting.  Based off his small amount of MLB plate appearances this year, Span fits the organization's slap hitting/small ball strategy with a good OBP and SB skills, which at this point are more than Delmon has to offer.  I believe that Delmon did improve his ISO power and OBP this year but at the same time didnt put up expected statistics that corner OF are expected to produce (at least in regards to power).  With Gomez, Span, Cuddyer and Kubel also on the team and 2008 stand out Ben Revere and other toolsy prospects like Hicks in the wings are the Twins giving up on Delmon after 1 year or are they just shopping to see what kind of value he still has.  They could improve at 3B and the bullpen but SP is pretty solid (Liriano, Slowey, Baker, Perkins and Blackburn) and plus they gave up Garza for him before the season started. 

First time poster here, would like to see what other people think.
