Let's move Doumit


The McClouth trade was a baseball trade.  When you get up to the deadline, I feel you may get less value due to time constraints.  Let's say the FO wasnt actively shopping McClouth and the Braves actually kept pushing them to make the trade.  In that scenario, we get what we want with no deadline pressure and we can drive the deal.

I think we may need to start shopping Doumit before the deadline.  We have two catchers who have filled in admirabley and are definitely better defensively.  In addition, they have both handled the pitching staff effectively.  While Doumit is a "Pittsburgh kind of guy", I think he could net us a similar (maybe a touch lower) return.  We really dont sacrafice much power and we gain defensively.  We would also give up a player who has not made it through any season without missing a chunk of playing time.  I would be all for packaging him up with a Grabow to net us a decent return for a middle infield prospect and/or power bat or both.
