I'll admit that this isn't anything I expect to see happen, but in thinking about what on Earth I was going to write about last night, I stumbled upon Brian Wilson's name, and before long had convinced myself that he's a reasonable pickup for the Twins to make.
Firstly, he's not going to have an exorbitant price tag. The market for him has yet to take off since being non-tendered by the Giants. The biggest rumors surrounding Wilson to date have been that the Mets aren't willing to offer him a Major League deal. The Giants aren't bringing him back; rather, they're in on Brandon Lyon.
Yes, Terry Ryan got burned by Joel Zumaya last season, but the two aren't direct comps. Wilson is coming off of Tommy John surgery and had been highly durable prior to the operation (albeit, it was his second go-around with Tommy John). Zumaya was the most fragile commodity in baseball.
