I don't see a point to deal Cole then, just keep him and resign him. He obviously seems as if he wants to.

Again, I don't move him for at LEAST Olt involved. AT least, he is a must.

It really comes down to market and who is being offered, like I said I want at least one of Olt/Profar. Obviously, I'd rather Olt + Profar. But if neither name is mentioned, then I'll keep Cole.

You might be able to get something for Blanton. Nothing good, but something.

Trading Ruiz now would make perfect sense, but I don't see them doing it due to the public outcry that it would cause.

Pence has gotten his numbers back up, and is controlled through next year so he might be an option to trade. Although, they may want to keep him since he isn't really old yet.

You could probably get something for Pierre, but I think I'd bring him back next year, unless he wants to try for another serious contract before he retires.

I still think Howard's contract is moveable if he can still hit 35+ HR's, and they eat some of the money.

Lee - I don't see him moving.
Halladay - I don't see him moving unless he asks to be dealt.
Hamels - Keep.
Blanton - Who's going to want that, unless we're eating this season of it?

Victorino - I'd move him, last I heard Yanks/Giants were interested.
Pence - I think they keep him.
Ruiz - I don't see how they could rationalize moving him unless the deal was a steal.
Pierre - Reds were/are interested[not sure if they actually are anymore].
Howard - I think it's wishful thinking that they'd move / be able to move him. I think that's one contract we're stuck with.
