Howard to Twins?

With the Twins just about eliminated, Aaron Gleeman suggests that they address their offensive shortcomings by trying to acquire Ryan Howard from the Phillies, possibly in a deal for Torii Hunter. Sid Hartman had previously suggested that the Twins try to pry away the Phils' other first baseman, Jim Thome, but I like Aaron's idea better.

This may be because at this point it's quite clear that the 23-year-old Aaron Gleeman knows quite a bit more about sports than the 86-year-old Sid Hartman. I mean, I heard Sid on the radio the other week and he mistakenly referred to Brett Favre as "Bart Starr."

Hey, I'm not 23 yet!

Sids a funny guy. But, he's not dumb. I may disagree with him often, and he is the definition of a homer, but I still read his column and his column carries the sports section more than Reusse's or Souhan's.
