I honestly believe that there's a better than 50/50 chance that what we have in the system now is what we will finish the season with. Because we have such a limited number of legit prospects in our system I don't think DD will be foolish enough to mortgage the future on SPs (or other players) that really aren't any better that what we already have or are just rentals.
I could see trades like the one suggested for Dustin Ackley or, IF
in mid July it looks like we aren't going anywhere, I could see us trading Hardy and Jim Johnson in an effort to build a winner. I just don't see Schoop or some of the others wasted on a futile effort to stumble into the playoffs UNLESS the pitching starts to straighten up.
