Pierre is not a decent lead off hitter, can not play CF (nor any other position to speak of) and has what is really an albaross contract.
If we trade Phillips, we need to get back premium talent.
You don't take Pierre unless you get rid of th esame amount of ugly salary. And even then I wouldn't do it. Taveras is just as bad but for quite a bit less.
And then come 2011, and Pierre is still yours. You need to look at contract commitments for more than 1 year.
