  1. Can they do a sign-&-trade with Delgado? I don’t theink there’s any way on earth he repeats what he did this year and he’ll be 37 by Opening Day.

    SELL HIGH!

  2. CharlieH.: They could, but it would be unlikely. If they dealt Delgado, they still would have the problem of trying to replace him.-JD

  3. Keeping Delgado for ’09 is a no-brainer. Then letting him walk if a replacement (Carp, Evans, Murphy, Duda, Davis) is ready brings us draft picks.

    If no one is ready re-sign him for 1 year, as long as he’s productive in ’09.
