The only way you can get an upgrade on D without giving up great prospects/roster players is taking a risk on a guy who might rebound with a change of scenery... like Ballad. You're not getting a guy like Bouwmester for Morrow + Robidas or something like that. No one wants our scraps, and no one on this board wants to trade the youth.

So tell me constant "Fire-Joe" and "Upgrade this D" people.. who do you want to target? Who are you willing to trade? Let's see some realistic proposals here.
Funny you mention Bouwmeester because that's who I had in mind.

I know, we haven't seen the playoffs in a while and he NEVER has, but much like Gogo was supposed to do, J-Bo would step in and immediately be our #1 guy. He's durable and would be a great addition to our back end.

Would see no problem moving Morrow and a pick and/or prospect for him.

If you're telekinetic and you know it, clap my hands!
