You all make it sound like this is a situation of any dollar overpayment means we can just cut the guy loose and not be any worse off. I've heard people who want Girardi and Callahan to go. What are you doing with that money? Keeping Richards?
I don't think people want the surplus cap space. I think people are more concerned that we're going to overpay veterans that are already slowing down and have been playing so poorly that it hurts the team. Just because we can afford Cally + G we should keep them? No thanks.

This is a chance to sell of some of our good but not great veterans to restock the prospect pool, and get some young kids to fit the new system. Cally and G aren't cutting it. Period.

Having all this money tied up in mediocre veterans hurts this teams's chances of winning anything.

I'd trade both of them before the deadline.
