    What About Aoki and K-Rod?

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/0...fter-2014.html



    With this report, and the fact that Rodriguez should be available, got me to wondering if we could find a match with us and the Brewers.


    Aoki has a very team friendly deal through next season, so he could fill the Choo/Leadoff void while waiting on Hamilton. For this season he would be a bat better than most current LFers in case Ludwick is not right, or does not return at all this season.


    The BP is one area that could use help.

    I like Aoki a lot, and he'd be good insurance for next season. However, he's another lefty, and I think this team really needs a dependable RH bat for some balance. It's also going to be tough to get him without overpaying when dealing with a division foe.

    I'm kind of indifferent on K-Rod. I'm not a big fan of his, but he has been effective so far this season. In general, I hate trading for bullpen help because I think it's overpriced, but it may be a necessary evil this year with how depleted the bullpen has been.

    On Aoki I know what you mean about the need for a good RH hitter, but I also feel we need good hitters where we can get them.

    On trading for BP help, I would hate to overpay, but I trust Walt to value them better than Krivsky.

    There may not be a match within the division, but I do think they are the types of targets we should look at.
