Thanks very much for your opinion, ED. The reason I hesitate to trade Alfonzo is because of the following: He is a lock to hit .300. If he hits 5th in the lineup, where he is projected, he will easily approach 100 RBI. His power increased the second half of last year, which is a sign he was getting healthy again. Klesko for Palmeiro straight up I would lose H, 1B, 2B, SB, and AVG (a little) and gain in R, HR, RBI, TB, and BB. The swap of Alfonzo for Hunter, I lose AVG, K's, BB's and possibly runs, but gain in HR, RBI, 2B, 3B, and SB's. Overall, I increase HR, RBI, SB, 3B, and would lose AVG, K's. Also, not sure if I want to get rid of Klesko because of his OF eligibility. I just need a decent 1B back without giving up Klesko, so I can slide him in the OF. Maybe I'll look and see what it'll take to get Derrick Lee.
