Loved that one.

That was during our "Golden Age" of trading. It seemed like every year we'd sign a reclamation project, build up their value and then at the deadline, Ryan would trade them to a team for a little known prospect that they were barely aware of, and he'd turn out to be a stud.

Wow! I thought it was later in the season. One of those trades that only goes thru after the player clears waivers. Guess not. I didn't really like my guess.

Since the Johan deal technically wasn't a rule 5 draft pick, this is one of the best they ever did on Rule 5
12-04-1989 Selected by Minnesota Twins from San Diego Padres in the Rule 5 major league draft (December 4, 1989).

I guess Papi would have had to 'roid in MN for that to have occurred.

We had a few good ones with the Mariners. This must be where I had the Roberto Kelly connection with the Mariners in my mind.

August 20, 1997: The Seattle Mariners sent Jeromy Palki and Joe Mays to the Minnesota Twins for Roberto Kelly.

Yup, Shane Mack is one of the greatest Rule 5 picks in MLB history.

Definitely a good trade, as great as Viola was. Tapani and Aguilera were rocks for this franchise for a long time.

This one has yet to really pan out at all

The Arizona Diamondbacks acquired switch-hitting infielder Eduardo Escobar from the Minnesota Twins on Friday for minor league right-hander Jhoan Duran and outfielders Gabriel Maciel and Ernie De La Trinidad.

If acquiring Kevin Jepsen is near the top....AHHHH! I tried to forget that guy.

Yeah, the trade deadline has not been very stellar in franchise history.

The jewel for the Twins out of this ended up being Kinney. Though he was only up for two seasons, he was able to soak up some innings as a ground ball pitcher.

There are few gems of any sort in a lot of those deals

OCAB was a good get for not much.

But again, overall the trade deadline has been not all that great in Twins history.
