    Now that all the OF free agents are gone...

    Are we gonna like...find some warm body to put out there?

    Hairston can essentially hold us hostage for as much money as he wants considering we have no other options now.

    At this point lets just roll out a timeshare of Kirk/Cowgill/Duda/Valdespin/Baxter

    I doubt we get Hairston back. Yankees at least will offer more money and since we don't expect to do anything this yr and probably next yr, we won't be offering him much money.

    In the meantime, I think we should explore trade options with ARI for Gerrardo Parra. He's been a pretty good hitter the last few yrs with speed and a little pop, and can be our new CF for now. Plus he's not a free agent until 2016. Those are the type of players we need to be looking at.

    Parra would be a nice get. He's the Dback OFer I think we should target. .280 career hitter...won a gold glove....25 years old.

    He's kind of similar to Angel Pagan but Parra is the better fielder/little less of a base steeler.

    The thing is that the Dbacks dont want/need to trade for pitching. I dont know what position players we could trade. Flores would probably get a deal done, he doesn't have a position for us while the Dbacks have no 3B.

    I like Flores for Parra, but again isn't Parra just another of those peripheral guys. Not quite an everyday player, close but not quite.

    I think if he was given the shot to be an everyday player he would be pretty solid. He started 124 games in 2011 and was really good.

    He hasn't quite played everyday in AZ but he's been plenty productive....he's the ideal 4th OF who can start 100+ games a year.

    What would Arizona want for Eaton. Valdespin, Flores, familia?

    Maybe AZ would be willing to include a SP like Patrick Corbin or Daniel Hudson

    Valdespin also a guy who can interest AZ in a Parra trade

    I'd steer clear of Parra. He seems more suited to a platoon role than an everyday outfielder. And his away stats are pretty bad, so I have a feeling he won't hit well at Citi at all. If we could deal with the D-Backs, it's Adam Eaton I'd covet. I doubt that they would let him go. It seems thay are more likely to move Kubel, who I am not at all enamored with, and slipping Eaton and/or A.J. Pollock into Kubel's corner outfield spot.

    I'd much rather see Eaton as well. We really don't have any Centerfield option like Eaton in our farm system, and all the upcoming free agent options next year are better suited for corner positions than up the middle.

    He would also leave room in our budget to bring back Scott Hairston, or maybe even take fliers on both Sizemore and Delmon Young.

    Special Offer: One Year, $1M Contracts...Get 'em While They Last

    Maybe SA turns the tables...instead of waiting for the scrap heap to dwindle to nothing have a job fair and see who's nervous enough to sign on his terms right now...24 hour time limit...take it or leave it. Then maybe he can do a $2m fair for the next better group until he fills the outfield and bullpen holes.
