I think he is not quite ready yet.
Luckily they have pieces to trade, and there are some serviceable ones in free agency.

But I think the biggest need is 1B/ DH.
There are no internal options.
Lind is done, and I do not want to see Buck or Arencibia there.
I think this is what AA pursues now.
This is the genius of this trade.
If you are losing games because you have no front line pitchers, or no elite shortstop, that is bad news.
But if you are losing games because you need a 1B or DH or LF...well, by comparison, that is good news.
AA can get a decent hitting guy at those postions for a ride to the airport.
