    What would it take for you to trade A-Rod?

    I'm thinking about putting him out there, but it would cost a king's ransom.

    Ballpark, obviously we know nothing about eachother's roster's, how much would you give up for the best player in the game?

    Dependent upon need, but I would want a very good hitter, a front line starter and another decent guy.

    I'm thinking about Rollins, Dunn and Putz for A-Rod and Todd Jones.

    Could use Rollins speed.

    Try to get Miguel Cabrera + a solid pitcher.

    Wright, Hanley, Reyes, Cabrera, Holliday, or Utley would have to be involved

    + a solid pitcher

    The deal would have to include a top-tier middle infielder.

    I don't know if he'll do it. I put it out there.

    I also put A-Rod and Jeff Francis for Cabrera, Manny and Yvonni Gallardo.

    Supposedly the guys a Yanks fan, so maybe that will hold some weight. Maybe with Gallardo being out a couple weeks he'll hand him over.

    I figure, if the worst thing that happens is I get to keep A-Rod, then damn, that's pretty good.

    PECOTA projects a better year for Miguel Cabrera than A-Rod, so that would be a sweet deal for you, as long as Gallardo's injury isn't serious.

    I wouldn't count on much from Manny as he is in decline, and I would have zero problem handing over Jeff Francis.
    I'm interested in jobs and you won't create jobs by forcing employers to pay their employees $9/hr- Sea Ray
    I'd say min wage should be about $9/hr - Sea Ray
