No Fire Sale

With all of this trade talk swirling around wouldn't it be better to hang for a greater chance of immediate success next year and success that we can sustain.  Say if we do trade away NJ, Dunn (I know Rizzo said he wouldn't), Hammer, Guz then next year we are looking at a season a lot like this year. 

I would definately say get rid of AK, Hammer, Beimel and take what you can get.  But say we trade NJ, we have no replacement or heir apparent and the the FA market is not that great next year and NJ would be one of the best options as a free agent.  LaRoche is the only younger 1B that is a FA next year unless we were to make a run at VMart (who wouldn't come here anyways).

The same goes for SS.  We should have some money to spend with AK and D'Meat Hook off the books and we should spend that on relievers.

2010 Proposed Lineup

C- Flores, Nieves or bring Brian Schneider back
1B- Johnson
2B- Hernandez, Morse
SS- Guzman, Gonzalez
3B- Zimmerman
OF- Dukes, Dunn, Morgan, Maxwell, Bernadina

SP- Lannan, Zimmermann, Olsen, Martis, then take a run at a FA- Harden/Bedard/Wolf
RP- Strasburg, Stammen, Detwiler, Storen, Go after FAs Soriano, MGonzalez, Putz, Rodney, Grabow, maybe even Billy Wagner

I think this would be a team set up for immediate success, as well as a system full of young arms and talent for sustained success
