Re: Roberts - revisited
IF we have the same problem at short next year then i'm sure the idea will come back up. now it's just an assumption that we'll have that problem. is the last couple years an indication of the next 5+ years for agon or is it just a big blip? only time will tell. but since we already have $5 million invested in him i'd like to see if we could find a place for a decent cheap (versatile) backup just in case for '09.
and more importantly if we deal prospects for an infielder i'd prefer it to be a top ss prospect. it would make sense to deal from an area of strength (3rd base/left field prospects) to improve a weakness (ss prospects) that could help us for 5-10 years (and at a cheaper price) instead of 1-4 years of a player that would cost much more.
