The rumors have always been that NH overrates his prospects and doesn’t want to part with them. I bet the two we give up will be guys I’m okay parting with.

I am willing to wait & see.

I’m thinking Lambo and Stevenson now.  No particular reason.

We give them Krol and Calvin Anderson for AJ.
They give us Gary Sanchez for AJ.
End result:  They gave us Gary Sanchez for nothin’.

They have a lot of RH reliever depth now and there’s a good chance Hughes would clear waivers.
