No, he's not.   ;)  We'll wait and see how he handles his first slump.  Oh, and one of those SBs is pretty iffy.  :P

I was looking at that in a package for Haren, been mulling that over.  PM me a proposition (not including Burrell) or offer it up on Y!

I'm a little more gun shy about letting Haren go at this point.  Would you have interest in Cabrera if Haren wasn't available?

Maybe Miguel Cabrera and Jimmy Rollins for Hanley Ramirez?

I might go for that.  Let me take a look at the numbers and I'll get back to you this afternoon.

Right on.

Keep in mind Rollins was out for 3 weeks or so when you eye his numbers.

And keep in mind I drafted those guys at numbers 8 and 9 overall.

Yeah I get all that, this is intriguing.  Trade Ramirez who was taken 2nd overall in the draft and is currently performing up to those expectations for Cabrera and Rollins who were taken low 1st round and who historically performed to that level, but are barely performing up to Top 100 expectations this season.

It's a gamble with high upside for me, and a fairly safe bet for you with a chance I might realize the upside on my end and get the better deal.

Interesting - i'll gnaw on this one while I'm battling tooth decay in the PM.

No doubt, they've underperformed but Rollins started off very well and I keep reading opinions that Cabrera is set to break out big.  There's no reason they shouldn't turn it around and I won't be crushed if I roll with them.  I don't want to sound like I'm overselling this thing but it almost leaves me nervous that it could work out for you too well or Rameriez could get hurt and I could be kicking myself.  In any event your analysis is dead on - slightly more risk for you, but there's a lot of potential pay off.

Drilled some teeth, pulled one, slept on it.  You've got yourself a deal.  I offered it up on Y!

Cool - I'm going to mull it over for a few more hours and then in all probability accept it.

Short term it sure looks like a ****-up to drop Doumit huh?

I just didn't feel like I had enough space on the roster to keep 2 catchers...

Be honest, would you have traded anything for him?


I think we need about 2 more bench spots...  ::)
