So we're saying that Victorino wouldn't be an upgrade over Pagan, Gardner, or Seth Smith? Really?
Last time I checked, Victorino has a better OBP than Pagan and Smith by a wide margin (JUST loses out to Garder by 1 point), has more HR's than all three, and more RBI's than Pagan and Gardner....AND he has missed the last 8 games or so.
I think he's an upgrade over all three, with MAYBE an argument being made for Gardner.
I personally would do this trade...especially in a non-keeper. Pitching can always be found on the waiver wire, especially towards the end of the year when guys are being capped and/or given rests before the playoffs, and you can catch lightning in a bottle with their replacements (just look at what Worley and Kendrick have done for the Phils recently in place of Blanton and Oswalt).
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
