    I get the sell high philosophy and if someone makes a foolish trade offer for someone, then yes, you take it. But that's highly unlikely.

    Everyone loves upside and that's what prospects provide. But the number that hit that upside is fairly small. Selling just to sell keeps you in the middle.
    Well it depends again on whether you believe a player is truly good or if perhaps they just had a good year. Plus it depends how many years of control you have left and what's behind them. Pretty sure if we could have a do over a lot of fans would say we should have traded Guerra, Peralta, Villar, and Broxton for example.

    Rumors floating around are that the brewers are interested in jake arrietta. Not sure exactly how I feel about him.

    Also read the Brewers are looking at multiple Rays pitchers and that the Giants are looking at all our outfield options. Overall its been quiet so far.
