Just wanted to see what others thought. I don't really want to turn it into a trainwreck over should we sell or not, lets just say for the sake of argument we are going to. I know we won't trade everyone, but I wouldn't be opposed if we did. Here's my .02
Top Shelf(people gladly pay for the good stuff)
Bronson Arroyo: Absolutely pitching out of his mind this season and a great contract. His value can never be any higher and I don't think he can continue putting up these kind of numbers. He could be our Herschel Walker if Kriv can find our Minnesota Vikings.
Adam Dunn: Goes without saying. Great numbers and great contract also. Make a contender desperate for a big bat pay dearly Wayne.
Import Beer(probably more expensive than it should be but it looks cool)
FeLo-Who doesn't need a potent switch hitting SS? Defense and pending contract status along with being a Boras client make him potentially more expensive than he's really worth.
AK- Someone could buy into the fact that this years numbers are the real Kearns and over do it.
LaRue- career offensive numbers are among the best out there but he's having a bad '06, coming off a knee injury and his contract's a consideration. Injuries to a contenders catcher could move him up to top shelf.
E Ramierez-I'm not opposed to keeping the guy but he's pitching well above his means right now (imo) so see if you can charge the big import tax on someone.
B Phillips- just like EZ. I like him and wouldn't mind keeping him but if someone were to pay his currently inflated price then I'm all ears.
Domestic Beer (You get what you pay for and its good enough for most)
Harang- Solid middle of rotation young pitcher but we can lose with him or we can lose without him. If a contender will part with two younger future Harangs to win now, ship him out.
Aurilia- RZ fodder for many moons but as a super sub/bench guy he has legit value.
Coffey- I'd hate to part with him but he's a legit ML caliber set up guy and thats a nice thing to have in what will surely be a sellers market.
Well Drinks(there's a reason it's .25 cents a glass)
Claussen-He's left handed
Mercker-After he heals, he's still left handed.
Hatteberg-Make sure they notice the OBP Wayne.
Ryan Wagner- He just needs a change of scenery(yeah, thats the ticket)
Castro- Aye caramba
Any bullpen member-"most folks pay dearly to drink the stuff we ring from the bar towels fella but in your case I'm sure we can work out a deal..."
If I could sell this stuff I would have already
Milton and Griffey for obvious reasons. My question is would it be worth it to package them with a top shelfer and free up the money?
Anyway, just one guys uninformed and bored opinions. Thoughts?
