Realistically, if you are KW, who are you shopping for. We have all heard about Freddy Garcia, Ben Sheets, and possibly C.C. Sabathia. Is there anyone else out there that looks good and reasonable, and if so how do we get them? Personally, I would be interested in looking into Benson on the Pirates. I would also like to not have to trade Reed just yet. Borchard, I wouldn't miss.

Ramon Ortiz could be a long shot back up plan if all else fails. I don't anticipate that, and I don't know if they're thinking about that, but I'm pretty sure they like the guy.

I just can't imagin the Brewers giving up Sheets. For the longest time the franchise has been disappointed that he had not lived up to his potential. Now, he is finally looking like the Ace they had desired. Furthermore, the Brewers are very much in that Central race.

But trading him is a PR mess the Brewers also cannot afford

One name I bandy around a lot in my head but don't see a lot on the boards is Odalis Perez. Any thoughts on him? Or do we think that with the Dodgers still in the thick of things that his asking price would be way too high?
