What!? You don't want to trade 11 players/draft picks for player who can't win the WS by himself. That's crazy talk, look how well the Vikes did in the years following the Walker trade (please note the sarcasm poured on thick and heavy).
I think everyone agrees that trading multiples of Cozart, Alonso, Mesoraco, and Grandel would be a terrible idea. It took a long time to build this product, we don't want to see it dismantled overnight.
