It would be nice if Danks could pitch well this season and allow Hahn to trade him for salary relief and a prospect. Coupled with expiring contracts for Floyd and Paulie, Hahn would then have a significant flexibility to fill multiple holes with free agents. Sale-Peavy-Quintana-Santiago-Axelrod is an acceptable rotation for 2014.
