Just a thought I had the other day: what kind of trade value might Jeff Karstens or Charlie Morton have? They're both pitching very well and still have some years of team control. They may appeal more to a team that wants pitching without taking on the salary of a Maholm. I see it as a sell high scenario, although there isn't a track record of success yet.
Not saying I advocate dealing either one; I'd much rather see the Bucs stand relatively pat this year. We just talk about trading Maholm/Hanrahan so much I was looking for a different angle.
