Building/contending transition period

It seems to me that the Pirates and many fans (me) are in this weird position of transition for the team.  I am sitting here thinking "man it would be nice for Andy to play to get some trade value at 2nd since the only 3rd baseman this offseason is Beltre" but then again I am very happy with Walker at 2nd and would rather see him play and improve and obviously Pedro is at 3rd.  I feel the same way about first/RF with Clement/Moss/Jones/Milledge with talent, although none has proved themselves fully (Jones is close)

 

I guess what I am saying is that it is weird for me to think in terms of I hope this player helps us contend instead of I hope this player can fetch something in return, which is a good problem to have.
