I fully expect Bud Norris to be dealt this offseason too (more trading partners). The only guys I think they'll keep are Altuve & that kid from the Red Sox (SS)...(just went blank on his name though)
I see more of a Pirates/Royals style "rebuild" in progress--get a bunch of marginal prospects to improve a disastrous farm system and call it "restocking." Too bad they're moving so we can continue beating up on their "rebuilding project."
