I'm as much of an optimist as the next guy (as long as the next guy isn't Al) but lets face it, barring a miracle this team is going nowhere this year unless its actually further down in the stats. I'm starting to see the names of more of our potential trade chips showing up in trade ideas and rumors. We've already seen D-Lee and Fukudome's names appear in rumors, but a quick perusal of SBNation's Daily Dish would put out there two more. The Dodgers may be looking for more pitching, truth be told who isn't. One of the more realistic ideas put out there was our very own Ted Lilly. Me, I can't see this happening because he's been the best man in the rotation for the past three years and I think the team would like to hang on to him (at least they should). The other involved the Rockies looking for a short term solution for Tulowitzky, who has a wrist injury. One idea here was our own Ryan Theriot. I think we could get good return here and is worth exploring. Of course, maybe they would take Baker back. I think there is no way we get rid of Lilly unless someone absolutely blows us away with an offer but the Theriot idea I think is something that should be explored. Personally, I think we really need to be exploring any and all options because this season is essentially lost. What say you other long suffering members of BCB.
