Agreed, especially when you have Henry Rodriguez and David Vidal on the farm, and a guy like Youkilis potentially wanting to finish his career at home for cheap in FA (although that option becomes significantly less likely with Uptons salary on the books). Still for one second just imagine:
Heisey CF (switching to Hamilton leading off in 2014)
I would think a package of Frazier, Stubbs, and Gregorius would certainly get their attention. If you add a guy like Bailey or Lotzkar, I think the Dbacks do that deal.
I would of course offer H-Rod instead of Frazier first, but this COULD also be a sell-high move on Frazier. It's quite conceivable that he is not going to maintain an OPS above .825 in the future.
