If Streit or Campbell can be had reasonably, then that would obviously bump Gus down to Grossmann.

Either way, we're going to be patient with Ghost for now. Whether it was the organization's call or Ghost himself wanted to stay, I'm cool with it.
This assessment makes sense to me.

Getting Streit or a similar type of player without giving up much (or anything at all) could be a more feasible way of improving short term than swinging the big trade.

If Gus is bumped down to play with Grossmann that might not even be bad for him - those two may complement each other well. Mesz would be expendable or they just keep him if he fits under the cap because realistically there gonna be injuries.
