All Star Results May Require a Trade

Prior to the All-Star Game, I was one of those that advocated for no major trades. Even though I still do not want to give up any of the potential stars in our system, I was thinking that maybe the AL victory requires us to think about when we get to the WS this year. (I know, it is WAY too early). Since the AL team will have the home field for up to 4 games, the DH will be a factor. Unfortunately, the BUCz do not have enough offense with 8 men batting, let alone finding a ninth bat and still have a bench. The AL teams have a big advantage here, with some of the best offensive players in their league being the DH. (Which of course will cut the other way when that are at PNC.)

I know there is a lot of really good opinion out there and I would love to hear some of it, like if the DH matters and especially not only what we should go after, but more important, what we are willing to give up. Myself, I believe we are very deep in starting pitching and should consider Morton or Wandy for a really good bat.
