I'm sure 29 other teams would love to have him too but I'd expect Toronto to ask for the moon.
For myself and every single Rangers fan I've talked to, I hope not. Rangers are doing much more than we all expected, but we are not one pitcher away from being the best team in baseball. At this point trading away high prospects for a short term player doesn't make sense. Maybe next year or 2011, 2012 I could see them making a move but usually with this kind of solid core of youngsters there's no reason to do it.
Also throw in the fact that Hicks can't add any more salary (probably can't even sign either of the two 1st round picks this year) and I don't think he has room to add any big name player.
