I think Scotty Olsen and Willingham together should be traded after this year.
They need to wait and see how Johnson/Anibal respond, if Volstad/Tucker can translate to 30 starts, and if Raynor/Burns/Jai/Carroll can take over LF. I can see a perfect scenario where we can get rid of Olsen because Anibal, Johnson, A. Miller, Volstad, and Tucker are ready to go, with Nolasco in the pen, and Hernandez, Trahern, and Thompson in the upper minors for added insurance. I don't think we can cover LF within the organization, or cheaply in free agency because of the need of OF stability because of the sure to be growing pains in CF with Maybin. They probably need to keep Hammer around for at least a year unless they acquire another significant LF.
I think Jacobs (G. Sanchez), Cantu (MacPherson), Gregg, J. Miller, and Mitre (Owens, Cruz, and keeping around Waecther/Nelson/Gardner), have virtually no shot at being on the team next year. They'll be able to keep only around 7 of Olsen, Nolasco, Johnson, Amezaga, Ross, McPherson, Treanor, Hermida, Willingham, and Uggla, with a $30-35 million payroll. But some of those guys are going to have to get traded for cost reasons. It'll be interesting to see which way they go.
Let's hope Beinfest has Jon Daniels on speed dial...I want one of those catchers inTexas!
