Victorino and Blanton won't return prospects who could be real pieces for the future, so it's whatever.

Selling low on Lee, especially with his contract and how his situation was handled the first time he was dealt, makes me uncomfortable. I say hold onto him and see how he is next year and how the team is. If he's pitching well and the team's sputtering again, that's the right time to trade him.
I was actually going to say that the whole thing doesn't have to be fixed in one trade deadline. They'll still have good pieces to move next year as well, and probably the year after.
