Pitchers on the trading block?

Postby acsguitar » Sat May 31, 2008 8:50 pm

Just wondering if anyone can come up with a list of pitchers who will be on the trading block this year? Preferrably starting pitchers.

Considering the Rockies are super deep in offense and super shallow in SP I assume we'll see them being big sellers.

Here's a list of players I assume the Rox's will be getting rid of for some pitching:

Holliday
Hawpe
Atkins
Taveras
Seth Smith
Corey Sullivan

Wondering who they'll get for them. I think Holliday is obviously the biggest piece. And I can see him going to NY for some young pitching. Any other teams out there with young pitching?
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Cubs have young pitching and Willy T would look good in CF at Wrigley.

I just don't see the Yankees trading any of their young pitchers.

You never know, Yankees might want to grab C.C. after this season so i cant see a trade happening in the season.

I'm sure San Francisco is entertaining all offers for Barry Zito.

I hope you are not referring to the Yanks, because I cannot see the Bronx Bombers adding ANOTHER Outfielder to the roster. I mean c'mon: Damon, Matsui, Melky, Abreu. Unless they are dealing one of them or more for Holliday along with a young pitcher, I don't see it happening. Plus, Cashman would not change his philosophy now, especially when he is already on the perverbial "hot seat", any change in his strategy would be useless now (I am referring to the idea of keeping the young pitching and not trading them away for proven talent).

I can see the Yankees moving Alan Horne (they don't seem very interested in him).
The only non-Holliday thing they'd want from Colorado would be Fuentes, and I'm not really sure that that's a realistic deal.
The Rockies will be interested in Horne's HR rate so I'd imagine he'd be part of any NYY/COL deal.
