I understand that the price for the parts we need is extremely high right now and that we probably will not make a move until we are closer to the deadline. However we need to make a move now so we can keep this lead in the Central. Walt doesn't need to wait until we are 4 or 5 games back and looking up. Make the move now while we still have a lead and are able to increase that lead. David DeJesus and Chase Headley need to be on this roster or 2 guys of the same caliber. This team needs a guy that can hit 1st or 2nd in the order and a guy that has a high OBP plain and simple. Make the move now Walt before were looking up. I love this team to death but the offense is frustrating at times. Mainly the top of the order IMO. I love Cozart to death but hes a 2 hitter. Walt has done an amazing job with the staff and bullpen, now he needs to help out this lineup. Sorry but I had to vent, and it may only get worse as tomm. we face Verlander.

Hey, I'd love to deal for Upton and I'd put up a prettu good price for him. If you're gone say Upton though, why not go all out and deal for Giancarlo Stanton.
As for more realistic targets?
01. Josh Willingham and/or Denard Spann from the Twins
02. Carlos Quentin and/or Chase Headley from the Padres
03. Shane Victorino from the Phillies (if they decide to move him)
04. Melky Cabrerra from the Giants
05. Buy low on LoMo from the Marlins
06. Choo Shin-Soo from the Indians
07. David DeJesus from the Cubs
08. Kevin Youkilis fron the Red Sox
09. Seth Smith from the A's
10. Martin Prado from the Braves
11. Dexter Fowler from the Rox
12. Adam Lind from the Blue Jays
