    • Hanley Ramirez for Ichiro and Beltre?

Would you trade your young star for two players who are probably worse and who are both over 30?

Is Ichiro tradeable?
I know he is a great franchise player and all, but this team has so many holes it doesn't look like it's going to be able to make the playoffs in the next 2 or 3 years... Ichiro is going to make 20 million a year during that time, maybe it's time to go completely into rebuilding mode and trade Ichiro away?

The dodgers put Pierre on the DL. Andruw Jones is on the DL too.

Trade with the dodgers, Reed, Balentien, and Beltre for Kemp and LaRoche.

Bedard/Reed for Kemp/LaRoche. Maybe... doubtful though

Kemp is a stud. I'd love to get him on the Mariners.

As much of a Beltre apologist as I am, if I'm offered Ramirez for Beltre and Betancourt I order someone to shoot me in the forehead if I even stutter to say yes. Hanley may be a butcher with the glove, but his skill set is best suited for the outfield. With his speed he can make up for a bad initial read, and projects to be at least as good as Randy Winn. An Ichiro-Winn-Notibanez outfield makes me salivate.

Oh yeah, and the .900 OPS and 50 steals.

Ramirez is already better than Winn ever was.

With all this trade talk, what about Ibanez and somebody else to ATL for Francoeur?

Am I crazy? Francoeur hasnt really had good numbers this year and Raul would give them more power and can play the outfield. Even tho he is 36, which is where the someone else comes in. :)

The problem for Atlanta would be that Ibanez can't really play the outfield. He's serviceable if used sparingly, but putting him out there every day would hurt them.

Then Ichiro for Francoeur and a top prospect or two. Ichiro isnt getting any younger and ATL certainly has a tradition of winning in the past and is a contender.

Ramirez is no where near where A-rod was at in this point in his career. A-rod is a five tool player. Hanley Ramirez has a mediocre glove and hasnt jacked out thirty yet or won a batting title. A-rods first full season he won a batting title, jacked out thirty, flashed a gold calibur glove....the list goes on.

Bedard at this state is worth three talented prospects? There isnt a team in all of MLB that would give 3 of their top prospects for Bedard and the state hes in. Forget that hes on the DL, hes shown he wont pitch past 6 and hes soft on the mound.
