The playoffs are great this year, but I want them every year, and if we have to give up guys like BAiley and Votto then I say no to any major deals. Now on the other hand what if these came along:
1)Chicago White Sox- trade Brian Anderson(CF) and Sean Tracey(SP) for Ken Griffey.
2)San Francisco-trade Kevin Correja(RP) for Scott Hatteberg
3)Chicago Cubs-trade Ronny Cedeno(SS) Will Ohman(RP) and Michael Wuertz(RP) for Felipe Lopez
we simply must look at all avenues, if it helps us build for next year.
1) Even though Anderson can't hit at all, if you don't have to pay for Junior's salary I would do it.
2) I don't know about Correja so I can't coment.
3) Cedeno has a terrible OBP and OPS, and isn't a great fielder. We have William Bergolla in AAA and they are similar players. IMO you could get more for FeLo.
