Agreed. However I do think Cingrani, Lutz and Stubbs does potentially address three need areas for them. I guess a lot of it depends on how much they think they'll contend in 2013, and how likely they think they are to re-sign Ellsbury. If they have doubts about either or both, a trade like that could make a lot of sense for them.
