    You could but they're not going to buy it so it really shouldn't factor in the decision. You just have to accept that you're going to take a huge p.r. hit no matter what you get back. This is where Rogers ownership can be frustrating. You have to convince them to take away from the quality of the television product and probably take a ratings hit to make the team better down the road.

    Since Ngoepe has options, there's still room for another infielder on the 25 and really there SHOULD be another infielder on the 25. I'm surprised when people talk like that need has been fully addressed.

    I mentioned discussing Osuna, in addition to Donaldson, in another thread in trade talks with the Cards. I dont even think offering him up is necessarily throwing in the towel on the season. If we signed a guy like Cain for the OF and picked up Gyorko, our production wouldnt be any worse than what we got from Donaldson and our outfield garbage last year. Plus wed have Reyes by June for the rotation and some legit depth in AAA if we send Osuna in a deal, as well.

    Id hate losing one or both of those guys, but the Cards have lots of interesting players in the upper minors that could help us now and in the long term.

    I think fans would be a lot more accepting of a rebuild after they saw it work for the Leafs. Even if we suck, as long as we have some prospects and it's a nice day out, I'm sure the attendance drop won't be that drastic.

    Yep that would be the type of deal you can sell to the fans short and long term.

    Yeah, one or the other, what do you think the Dodgers would want for McCarthy, read they were interested in moving him, that was before Ohtani decided on the Angels though?
