First, this is not a sky is falling thread. I do not think the sky is falling. I think it is April. Crazy shit seems normal in April. Instead, I thought I would offer up a scenario that would hopefully make a few people think and offer their thoughts. Again, the sky is not falling. This is just for sparking thought. Scenario: The Dodgers are 10 games out on July 27th. Do you go all in and trade from outstanding farm for a stud ? Do you go partly in and trade for decent with less leaving the farm and hope? Do you trade away certain veterans (paying as much or as little is needed) to acquire young upside players? Do you trade all veterans --even studs--to get the very best young upside players available? Who are you building your team around? What time table are you giving for a WS berth? What other thoughts do you have?
