I would.....I think Thome's numbers will go down with Burrell hitting in front of him it will be like the Bonds/Kent scenario and they are getting long in the tooth. The only downside is trading away still one of the premier catchers.

You gotta go with Giles and Chavez. Piazza is in serious decline and nobody seems to want to face it. If you don't trade him now, it may be too late to get value for him. Giles and Thome are about even overall, Thome will hit a few more HR's, Giles will have a better avg...similar runs and rbi's. Chavez is a stud that will have a huge year, maybe 40 HR's and 120 rbi. If not this year, then very soon. He'll outproduce Piazza this year and every year from now on.

I'd take Giles/Chavez and then try to pry Thome back in late April. Thome is switching leagues (look what that did to Alomar last year) and is a traditionally slow starter. Keep bringing up guys like Alomar who have had terrible seasons after switching leagues, then grab him back.
