The Major League Baseball trade deadline is 10 days away and right about now is the time every team has to decide if they're going to be buyers or sellers.

Unfortunately for Twins fans, the team looks destined for a top-5 pick in next June's First-Year Player Draft for the fourth consecutive year.

With the losing comes the inevitable trade chatter. The Twins have numerous players on the final year of their contract that could potentially help aid a playoff contender in the season's final months. Among them are pitcher Kevin Correia, outfielder Josh Willingham, catcher Kurt Suzuki, and first baseman Kendrys Morales.

KSTP caught up with manager Ron Gardenhire, pitcher Jared Burton and Suzuki to talk about what this time of the year is like, as well as get an update on the progress first baseman Joe Mauer has made with his oblique injury.
