I was thinking of dropping Blake for Loney and Weeks for Crisp and then move Ichiro and Theriot or another OF for a closer or 2...what do you all think?
You need to deal and get some pitching.
I bet theriot could get you a matt cain type or derrick lowe.
Delgado and weeks are immediate drops.
Weeks is out the year and Delgado is out 75% of the year plus his age.
drop delgado and weeks-- both out. sell high on Branyan. he's a lifetime .235 hitter or something awful like that. get what you can for him now. START THERIOT over Furcal. don't trade Ichiro just for a closer. And I think Blake would be more valuable than Loney, but given you now have 2 spots open due to injury, pick him up anyway.
