Twins interested in Wigginton?

So it appears the Twins could be interested in Ty Wigginton. Later in the same piece, there is a mention that several teams have inquired about Boof Bonser.

Now this could make some sense for the Astros. A Wigginton-Bonser trade would give the Astros another rotation option. As it stands now, the Astros have Roy, Hampton, Wandy, and Moehler. And since this isn't 1964, the Astros will need another starter. I'm guessing Backe isn't coming back and Bonser can fill a much-needed spot among the ranks of the Killer Bs.

But seriously, Bonser made $432,500 last year while Wigginton will command upwards of $7 million, and we all know that trimming the payroll is Priority 1...
