In your heart of hearts, are you really expecting anything more than a first or second round playoff exit and then the same old cluster**** of salary problems in the offseason?

Might as well sell off some assets now (and as I said before, I think this team can make the playoffs without a Prospal or Higgins or Girardi). I think Prospal, in particular, could fetch a worthwhile pick. Its time to start putting some sort of long-term plan into effect, because this team isnt going to be a contender for another couple of years. Might as well start building for that moment now.
I honestly wouldn't trade Prospal if we're guaranteed, right now, to make the POs. Now, if somehow, a team is crazy enough to give us in return a first round pick for a package of Higgins/Prospal/Girardi or whatever combination, that would be different, I could change my mind on letting Prospal go, but I don't see it happening.
