I'd be happy with getting a body back in return if it meant not having to watch majority of our players struggle to play baseball at a respectable level.

Hahn has all the leverage here and can take the best offer that comes his way from what is sure to be a host of contending clubs.
Hahn has leverage now, but that can quickly change (whether it be by a team's performance or by a team going out and picking up a need from elsewhere).
