Since our World Series is the trading deadline, which players do yinz see on the move? I'll start:
Adam LaRoche - replace with Steve Pearce (Note: We keep running Moss out there, why not let Pearce. He can keep the spot warm for Alvarez and at a seriously reduced cost).
Jack Wilson - replace with Brian Bixler (Note: BB is not the long term answer, but we could look for a top 5-10 propect in return for Jack).
Freddy Sanchez - replace with Delwyn Young (Note: This could be disastrous for the second half, but if his bat is halfway decent we could live with it).
Overall realistic return I would like to see from a trading partner - top 5 pitching propect, proven number 4 starter, top 5-10 SS prospect, proven major league IF, raw/toolsy upside player and of course the organizational throw ins. Am I being too optimistic or is this about right?
BTW - if they made me an offer to manager I am there yesterday!
