    Please do let us know names of all the future All Stars we'd receive back for Shoppach, Cook, Matsuzaka, Padilla, Podsednik and Jenks.

    In fact, just tell us what brand of beer we could get a warm sixpack of for Bobby Jenks right now.

    I'd happily include everyone you named in 2nd paragraph PLUS Albers AND one of Atchison or Tazawa plus a couple of mid-level prospects ( Brentz, Cecchini, Ranaudo,Wilson , Iglesias, Renfroe, Bermudez, Butler) for just ONE decent # 2 level starter and two decent AAA starter prospects .
    Current rotation is mediocre at best and none of Barnes, Britton, Ranaudo, Owens,Pimental, Pena or Celestino will be ready until at least 2014 minimum. By the time we have ANY decent pitchers ready for "prime time" Vinicio or Bogaerts will have supplanted Iglesias as shortstop of the future.

    I was just hoping to get some low to mid level prospects in the hopes that one amounts to something, or to use in later trades.

    Then, when healthy, trade some of our surplus OF'ers and RPs for some better prospects, and be loaded up for a possible deadline deal for a top quality starter with 2+ years of team control. If we don't find one, then we go into this winter in better shape than we will be if all these guys walk for nothing.

    There are no more type B FAs, so the TB model is now extinct (not that any of these guys would be type B anyways).
