The worst years of Tulo's deal are coming soon so they may want to be rid of it. They may also see a chance go get a legitimate mauler at 1b to replace Helton and a 2-3 WAR 2b thrown in to boot.
And like I said, if they came back and requested an arm, I'd still consider it. Not if they're asking for Miller, Lynn, Rosenthal or Martinez, but if they come looking for Wacha with the other 2? Yeah, I probably pull the trigger.
Why would you want to weigh down our payroll with another $20+ million contract? And trade our young studs to make that happen?
I'd rather trade Taveras for Profar.
