Would you rather trade Utley for a subpar package or keep him and trust that his knee problems have been solved?
I dont like the chances of Amaro pulling off a trade like that.

If there wasnt a good offer out there, I would keep him and try to sign him to a reasonable extension. Nothing more than two years. If no extension has been signed then in the offseason I would give him a qualifying offer and if a team throws a ridiculous contract at him, I would let him walk and take the pick.
