I don't think Callahan and Girardi are "generational talents" but I do think they are assets to this team. And they are. There's no reason to trade them away for draft picks instead of signing them to market value contracts.
But "market value" is a ludicrous price, with likely ridiculous term that this team can't afford to take on.

This team has the same problems it's had for the last 6 years. Can't score. Where are we getting the money to supplement these needs with So much money tied up in barely above average players?
