If I could make a good deal for Leake, I'd do it and use Redmond, Corcino, Cingrani, and maybe one new inexpensive veteran as the tandem in line for sixth starter.
But this thread is about CF and I would NOT trade a major player or prospect for a stopgap CFer. I'd trade someone in the Lotzkar category for a one-year CFer. Maybe two such prospects.
Problem is, you can't make a good deal on Leake right now. His trade value is probably at an all-time low even though his ceiling is still high. And I don't want to have to use Redmond, C/C unless I was forced to this season. With Leake in the loop, we won't have to be forced into that situation. If the right deal presents itself, fine. But I don't actively shop any of our pitchers right now. We can fill our needs without doing that.
Personally, I'll be fine with the team as a whole once Ludwick signs.
And yes, you're right...wrong thread. Sorry. I'll drop this now.
