IMHO I kinda think other GMs might think he could, and frankly I just don’t see it. This might be the best time to trade him.

I can’t imagine his stock could drop any lower than it is right now. That is not a smart decision for a GM. Plus, he’s still young… he may straighten up yet.

The Buccos are in first place at the season’s halfway point. They’ve had a difficult schedule for a good bit of this season’s first half. Yes … there is a lot of baseball left. But if we are strictly talking about competing at the big league level, I think that first place after 83 games is competing, and not only that, it is also succeeding.

Would Tabata have value and could he be part of an exchange where we get a solid offensive piece with a couple of years of control?

However, I don’t like the concept of trading for Greinke or Hamels, because there’s no way the Bucs could resign them next season and we clearly aren’t ready to compete just yet. I like what Huntington is doing with our system and I hope he gives it [is given] another few seasons to really show his plan (which I don’t think was trading away those top prospects for a rental arm).

Cayones has batted .273 in 42 PAs with 7 walks and 3 2bs.

Yeh…I’d say that was a steal….lol
