If someone like Griffey, Dunn, Hatteberg, Stanton, Valentine, Weathers, or Freel got traded, what would it mean to the big time minor league/farm system followers?
I know some of those names wouldn't yield much, if anything. But if they could get a prospect for a few of these guys come July, I think it would be pretty exciting.
The casual baseball fan really doesn't understand, or like, a fire sale, or quasi fire sale. But for fans that follow the system, the way many of us do, I think it can be a very exciting time.
Don't even consider if it is likely to trade any of these guys because my only question is:
What would you feel if we got some prospects in return?
