    Not sure if anyone else thinks we should look to move Montero, but if only the Astros weren't divisional rivals now, Houston would be the perfect place for him.

    They are going to need a DH, why not a young DH/C? Not to mention they have the short porch in LF to go with his RH swing.

    Yeah Houston sucks. I wouldn't want to trade Montero anyway unless it was something huge

    Well i said we would have to move Ackley before the trade Seager thing was brought up. I wasnt going to assume a trade of Seager. I was thinking Headley comes in and thats it obviously

    Yea, there is that too.

    But the Putz trade has proven to me that if another team wants what we have, there's a chance of getting what you want.

    They can have our top 5. We're talking about two superstars. I mean ideally we keep one of the big three, but other than that I'm taking that deal in a heartbeat. If one of our top 5 ever has the kinds of seasons Headley and Upton have already had we've hit the jackpot.

    And let's not forget that Safeco is still a pitchers' park. Getting good hitters is either going to cost a lot of $, trading prospects for proven guys, or developing in house.

    Pitchers will always be more likely to sign with us. Whether it be young guys or old guys trying to revive their careers.

    Sometimes quantity can outway quality. Theres 8 positions and 5 rotation spots to fill too. I just dont like the idea of trading 2 of the Big 3. Especially since Paxton would probably be the one that stayed. I dont know. Im conflicted.

    I would like us to also sign Jackson or something in that situation so we at least have our top 2 locked down and our rotation doesnt start to hurt us in the future. If we did that, then I would be fine with it.

    Still think Headley is overrated. I dont see him hitting 30 HR or .500 SLG again. Neither does Bill James it seems. Plus they came out and said they arent gonna trade him, so if we were to pry him away, we would have to blow them away.
