This is obviously a tougher question than it's been for the past couple of years. Technically, we're still in the hunt for a postseason spot. Realistically tho, I see our chances as quite slim to all but none. There are simply too many good teams ahead of us in the standings, and a few of these clubs seem to be getting better as the season progresses. We'd have to go on one hell of a second half run to place ourselves in the thick of it. So, does this mean we're back to our last few years of selling off existing talent for some future hopefuls? And if so, who would we trade that could bring us a quality prospect or two? I don't see Hahn & co giving up anyone worth trading at this point. I think we're too far along the rebuild to continue going down that road. Buyers perhaps? I doubt that too, altho I did read a suggestion on one of the Sox sites that one possible trade may not cost us much. The Giants might be willing to dump our old pal Jeff Samardzija in exchange for a mid level prospect or two, altho they would likely have to eat as least some of that huge salary of his. He has a no trade clause and there's nothing out there indicating which of those teams would be on that list. Maybe we're one of them, who knows. I do know if there is any possibility of this, I sure hope it wouldn't take more than what has been suggested. Otherwise, he's not worth it. Guess I'm in the standing pat camp. Let's see what this current group can do the rest of the year. I would LOVE to see us go after Cole or Oridizzi in the offseason to bolster a very weak starting corps. And then wait for more of the young talent to get healthy, develop and come up the ranks.
