Absolutely. The playoffs is enought to feel like this was a good year but you don't trade away anything that can help you win a World Series as soon as possible. Of course having experience in a pennant race would be good experience for the young players on this team.
So I wouldn't trade Homer or Bruce but I'd trade middle tier prospects because it would be useful for our players to get experience in a pennant race. Only a few of our players have it.
