Neftali Soto, Henry Rodriguez, Donald Lutz come to mind immediately. Phillips & Votto aren't going anywhere anytime soon.
Well, I wouldn't deal Cingrani or Leake or anyone in the rotation. I wouldn't deal Chapman, Broxton, Marshall, Hoover or Lecure. I wouldn't deal Corcino or Stephenson or Travieso. I'd resist dealing Contreras, Cisco, or Romano, but dealng some third tier prospects in a package for a jurneyman OF who might fit a need isn't bad. Rogers, Guillon, Lotzkar, Ravin, Partch, Villareal, Simon, Ondrusek, Christiani, etc, sure I'd deal them.
