I agree completely. Teagarden doesn't represent a big enough upgrade over Hannigan either. Russell Martin on the other hand....
I see no good reason to trade Bailey at this point. I don't think he is worth much at the moment. Let him pitch in the minors next year and hope he learns some things and then make a decision. I don't think his value is going to get any lower.
