The Twins are 7 games back of Detroit for first place in the American League Central with 2 months remaining and a week to go before the Major League Baseball trading deadline.  The Twins should finally cut bait on Liriano, Slowey and Delmon Young.  Liriano is inconsistent and doesn't keep the team in the game half of the time.  Kevin Slowey doesn't want to be here and his value doesn't seem to be increasing.

Delmon just doesn't fit as a Twin and the team wants to keep Cuddyer, Kubel and Span.  I'd rather see Ben Revere getting at-bats in August with the Twins than Delmon Young and that appears to be the options.  The Twins could also trade Matt Capps and Carl Pavano but won't likely deal Cuddyer.  The Twins want to see Cuddyer return next season despite being a free agent.
