I expect at least two of the following three to be dealt before Opening Day 2011: Yonder Alonso, Brandon Phillips, Juan Francisco.
I expect Brandon Phillips to be the first one dealt. Just idle speculation, though....
I suspect you are right but I look at it this way:
At least 1 of the 2 will be gone: Harang, Arroyo
1 will be traded out of: Stubbs, Heisey, Dickerson
At least 1 will be traded: Francisco, Alonso,
Phillips and Cordero are the flex options, if we feel 2011 is the year it all comes together both of them stay. If the necessary steps forward aren't displayed in 2010 they are both moved at the deadline for a more thorough rebuild.
