"I know from talking to Peter [Angelos], if there's a deal there that everybody thinks works, we're going to go. Nobody's scared here. Nobody's afraid to make a deal here. Trust me. Trust me. It's just, we've got to get the right one,"

How do you interpret them? I see the FO willing to make a trade that will help the team over the long haul. IMO the team only has a few positions they believe might need an upgrade OR that they're willing to replace the projected player; and I don't see much in the way of realistic trade opportunities for the available positions. I also don't believe we have the EXPENDABLE prospects to consider a trade for a player like Stanton. Let's hope that changes for 2014 because a lot of the talent we have in our system breaks out.
I think Buck is being very clear that we're NOT going to be making any trades that would empty the farm system or open other holes in our lineup. Around April 1st I'll know if I guessed right.
