    The whole offense with the exception of a couple are having a rough time. Gallo is hitting like .110 since the break, Maz is slumping and you name it including all the above mentioned. Santana is one of the exceptions.

    Kelley won’t be traded if he’s hurt, so won’t get anything for him. Interesting to see why they can get from any of the rest. Not sure why they are blowing smoke up their tails about sticking together when it seems every person in the room know their about to blow this thing up

    Everybody wants good players. I have no problem moving expiring contracts. Santana is exact type of hitter we need. Let's keep him

    I’m in total agreement here. If Santana was an expiring contract, I’d be all for it, but the guy will be making hardly any money the next 2 years with team control. Im skeptical that JD can get enough value from another GM to offset that loss.

    The other thing is we don’t know how good he can be yet. He’s playing like a totally different player this year.

    There are probably 6 other guys we can move. Maybe 5 now because of the Kelly injury.

    This year may have been the turning point for him. Keep him.

    That being said, never say never. If we got a great pitcher and others then I am ok moving him. I just think he projects as a role player in the market now and won't command as much as Profar did for example

    It is funny how Santana is playing well when given regular playing time and is allowed to play through slumps.

    I agree that some day he will be a very good hitter. Who would you have sent down? I think I would have sent DDJ

    I wouldn't be surprised if Calhoun is traded as well. Why move an aging veteran when you can hold onto them and trade younger, better talent? Kind of like they did when they decided to keep Odor and sent Profar away, not younger, but better.

    Initially I wanted to keep Calhoun, but the front office might have just spoiled that relationship.

    If he is traded, I hope it’s to the national league. If he’s traded within the division, god help us because he will be seeking revenge.
