That's not a particularly impressive list, but Hal Gill --- not as good as Girardi in some areas and stronger in others --- is a nice 1 year stop gap to McIlrath.
So sure, don't just give Dan Girardi away.
But if there is enough return, a deal can make sense.
Unfortunately, some die hards have a closed mind on this subject.
