This team could be on its way to competing again in about 2 seasons if they dismantled it properly, but I have a feeling they're going to hold on to everyone and sign another overpriced free agent. Or trade Lee off for more 3 years away pitching prospects.
If we trade Papelbon, I hope it's to Detroit. It seems like the most logical destination.
I doubt Lee is dealt.
Rollins, yeah. Highly unlikely to be dealt.
Young? Possibly. I want to see what the kid we have in the minors can do. (Asche)
Lannan? Doubt it.
