I think that the inclusion of Homer Bailey in trade talks is because other teams want him. The same for Hamilton, Bruce, Votto, and Cueto. Wayne Krivsky has never told who was available and who he wanted. Why would he start now. I think that the leaks are coming from Maryland.
"My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
The only thing Bailey and Cueto have in common with guys from 5+ years ago is the name on the front of the jersey -- and that doesn't tend to have a real affect on ability to pitch.
We could trade away every prospect in the top 10 and still just be an 88 win team. I don't want us to shoot for the moon and end up short in the short term and even less prepared for the long term.
