I think we have a solid team for 2013.
I think Cashman's plan is to wait until some of our top prospects get closer to AAA and then make some trades and bring up a couple of prospects at the end of the year so that they are ready for 2014.
The original plan was to have a cheap and solid rotation for 2014 from a pool of Penida, Nova, Betances, Banuelos, Hughes, Phelps to go along with CC. But 2012 kind of put a dent in that plan because Nova and Betances regressed and Banuelos and Penida got injured.
By trading Montero and the obove issue with our pitching prospects, Cashman cant really make a major trade because most teams want close to major league ready prospects. So he has to wait and see how the younger prospects turn out in 2013 and weather Penida comes back and Batences and an Nova can regain their form.
It will be interesting if we're some how not in the playoff picture by the trade deadline, Do we continue to fight for the last wild card spot and get a one game playoff or do we trade some the veterans that we have and get some young pieces in return??
