Capuano and Dee Gordon for Cabrera is all Id give up maybe throw in Harang if they really want him.
Absolutely best deal possible for us. Anything more and we should just walk away. Cabrera would make us very solid all the way around. Only question would be leadoff. I still think we are going to be pulling off more trades here soon and I can see this as being plausible. Despite everyone's complaints about Ethier, I just dont think he is worth giving up to get anyone that is available. A package for Cano at this point, would be the only player I would consider to give him up for but even then, Cano will be a free agent and I think we will be players for him next offseason anyways since Ellis contract is up too.
true but his contract would pretty much cancel out with capuano who is making 6...and Gutierrez is a career .293 hitter with a .830 OPS vs lefties, and he is a great defensive player. I mean its really not that bad, he'd be good insurance for crawford. But i'd still rather get a good reliever.
Cap for Gutierrez would give us our fourth outfielder. I think that's is a bigger hole right now than a reliever. Although, Derek Lowe is someone that i think would be great in a long relief/mop up role now that Wright got picked up by Seattle
