NH will keep Duke and Maholm as long as possible.

He's got bad knees and no longer projects as a catcher. There's now a glut at 1b (do we need to see more of Jones in the OF?). And Moss needs to play if he's ever going to get his power numbers up. So you have to send Moss down to Indy when Milledge comes up – at the very least Moss tears it up in AAA and becomes a tradeable piece (who wants Salazar?).

Grabow isn't going anywhere. You can't field a team without a LH reliever.

The market for Duke took a hit when Philly picked up Lee w/o giving up either of their top two pitching prospects. Unless some GM has a brain fart and overpays, Duke will remain a Buc.

I'd love to see them start to work Andy back to his natural position at SS. Alvarez will be taking his spot within a year anyway.
