He's apparently having a good spring and they want a decent price for him. Slowey is a good pitcher. We've all seen him several times since he's been with the Twins for four years. Last year for Minnesota he had 28 starts and 155.2 IP, with a 4.45 ERA, 3.98 FIP, 1.29 WHIP, and a 116-29 SO-BB ratio, for 2.2 Fangraphs WAR and 1.5 BR WAR. He's under team control through 2013. I would find out what they want and make the deal if it isn't outrageous. This might be a good time to cash in, say, our #12 prospect, Getz, and O'Sully for someone who will help the team now at a low cost. Maybe they'd want KIla. Slowey would be worth a couple of wins and make us suck less. I hate sucking. Let's at least get one good pitcher for cheap. Besides, we'd have him for the 2012 and 2013 seasons, when we're hoping to begin the wave of A prospects. And if he pitches well, he might want to sign an extension.
