Hahn is playing this smart. Other teams are counting on him caving, but he won't because he doesn't have to...he can trade these guys after the season. If they were rents, he'd have to cave. So he's betting on a buyer caving into his demands because they know he's not bluffing....they may not, but nothing to lose by seeing if they do. And a lot to gain.
He could have something to lose. Their value has a lot to do with it. If Hahn waits and Peavy has more injury problems or Rios or Alexei tank the 2nd half, it could end up being a bad move.
