Re: OF trade idea
Usually, I don't like the idea of trading starting pitching depth. But Walt has done a pretty good job of increasing the depth in that area.
With the emergence of Cingrani, and the solid showing from Galarraga at Louisville.........and you could even jump to double AA and see Sharky Rogers sub-2.00 e.r.a........and even minor league journeyman Greg Reynolds and Villareal are having okay years at triple A.
And in an emergency, Hoover spent most of his minor league career in the Braves organization as a starter. LeCure could pinch-start if needed.
I'm less worried that trading Leake would hurt this team.
I'm also not so sure Hamilton arrives in the majors PERMANENTLY, if ever, before 2015.
I'm not sure what it would take to get Fowler, but I'd definitely inquire.
