Twins Offseason Moves

Terry Ryan seems to be trying to make this team as mediocre as possible. Here's what I think of the moves.
Signing Ricky Nolasco: I'm fine with this move. It's a pretty reasonable price for a fourth starter. Even though with the Twins he'll be the first.
Signing Phil Hughes: This one I'm not a huge fan of. Hughes has only had one season with an ERA under 4 and that was in 2009 when he was a reliever. He seems like just a younger version of Correa.
Trading Ryan Doumit: This is a good move, especially because of....
Signing Kurt Suzuki: Suzuki is a solid fielding catcher, and a good player for Pinto to learn from. Swapping Doumit's atrocious defense is a great deal.
Now here's a move I'd like to see.
Trade Glen Perkins: Closers and relief pitcher in general are overrated. There are lots of players who can get three outs in the ninth and Perkins could bring in a decent prospect. Well that's it for now. Does anybody know long until pitchers and catchers report?
