Also what are some other players that rumours would be floating around as possible mid season trades that would kill an NL only team?
Couple of reasons Andruw won't be traded IMO:
1)He's a 10-5 player and has made it clear that he won't be going anywhere;there were some rumblings early in the off season about a possible trade but he put that to bed.
2)His agent is Scott Boras and with his track record of taking players to free agency it's unlikely any team is going to give up much of anything to trade for Andruw.
I'm in an NL league as well and with the Papelbon news it makes it unlikely that Lidge will be traded or Chad Cordero who were two candidates for trade.
IMO some other possibilities:
Mike Cameron(FA after the season)
Roger Clemens(Hou currently listed as his team)
