So, why not trade him at the deadline in a package to get something to fill a need elsewhere if we can. If not than see what happens
I agree that Diaz's future is in doubt for a variety of reasons. He is still a really effective DMan and, frankly, comparing him to Bergeron is way off base. Diaz is fine in his own zone and sees time on the PK (Which would be a disaster for Bergeron).
