You put Howard on the market in the offseason and eat most of the salary. But instead, people think keep Utley, Howard, Papelbon, Ruiz oh, but trade the only guy who is actually playing well in Lee.
Who said keep everyone not named Lee. The only one some are calling to keep is Utley and its for a variety of reasons people have already mentioned. I even suggested moving him and re-signing him in the offseason to a shrt term contract of course (2 yrs).
