Re: What's it going to take to win the Central?
It's going to take a trade for a RH hitting LFer or 3Bman.
Teams essentially already out of it: Baltimore, Cleveland, Oakland, Washington, Arizona, Colorado
What would it take to get Adam Jones from Baltimore? I doubt they would trade him since he is so young and having a good season.
Matt Holliday has his average up to .268 after struggling early on in the season. I don't want to trade the farm for a rental player though.
Let's trade for Ryan Zimmerman of the Nationals. (dream on)
We could propose a change of scenery trade with Arizona, EE for Mark Reynolds. Each of those players have their issues.
I'd love to pry Justin Upton away from the D'backs. Again......dream on.
I've mentioned trying to get Aaron Rowand from the Giants. I think they do that deal, and I'd do it if we didn't have to give up much. He is a gold glove CFer. We could move Tavares to LF and put Rowand in CF.
Scott Hairston of the Padres? He's 29. Having a good season. NL West teams are so far behind the ML leading Dodgers. They might be willing to deal.
All of the above players are RHers.
