On the other hand, aren't Thornton and Crain worth more now to teams in need of bullpen health. You may miss out on a team being desperate around the trade deadline, but I'd rather try now for a more established minor leaguer or two to bring over. No matter what assets we try for when dispersing these guys, can we get a young catcher as a top priority?
As far as Dunn, how much of his contract will we have to eat for next year to trade him?
Oh yeah, the game itself...nice job Chris! Everyone else...argh!
