I would offer Leake, one of Corcino/Cingranni & Heisey or Stubbs. If they don't bite I move on to Crisp (puke).
I'm with this idea.
If you can trade Leake and prospects, and get Fowler or someone comparable, then I do it.
Any trade including Bailey, Chapman, Hamilton, for a CFer, I say no to. I go free agent route at that point.
I'd really like to keep Cingrani and Corcino if possible and see how they progress this year in triple A. Only for the right deal do I trade either of them.
If potential trade partners want the world for a Fowler, etc.......I hold tight, use Heisey and Stubbs in CF, and hope Hamilton is here sooner than later.
