Re: Ross trade deadline is Wednesday...trade brewing?
I'm still hopeful Valentin and Bako will be gone. If I had to bet that one of those two will be back, I'd bet on Bako as a backup to whoever emerges as the semi-starter--Castillo, Tatum, or Hanigan. But if that's the case, then Bako is one of your five bench guys to start with, Dickerson is probably another (assuming a Freel-Dickerson platoon in CF), Keppinger is another (assuming return of Gonzalez and/or acquisition of another SS), Rosales will hit his way on to the team, and I'm figuring we see Hairston back, though not CP. Seems to me there's likely not going to be room for Javy.
