Buyers or Sellers? 

Post#1 » by zol2332 » Wed Jul 27, 2011 10:56 pm

Do you think it's worth making a deal for a fly-ball pitcher like James Shields? I don't think the rotation is the largest issue. Rather, we need a bat to put at the 4 spot. I believe Alonso could be that bat, but he's not going to get regular at-bats I fear.

Also, with rumors around Hernandez and Volquez drawing interest, I say unload. If we're lucky, someone will show interest in Arroyo as well, but his contract makes him difficult to deal as he has many clauses if he is traded.

I would like to see Sappelt brought up and Stubbs optioned to Louisville due to all of his strikeouts. Dave Sappelt appears to have the potential to be the lead-off man we actually need.

I don't think Stubbs will get demoted. It would be really nice to get James Shields though. He would be the great second pitcher we need to truly be contenders.
