"To say they’ll give up young players like myself or Kemp for a one-year (upgrade), I guess it depends on what their motives are. If they feel that this is the year that they have to get something done and they want to make the push, that’s their choice and their decision to make. … We’re an important ingredient to what we’re doing here, but at the same time we’re a commodity and can be traded freely."It would not even be for a full year. There is only about 2 months left in the season. So, if we trade this guy, or Loney, or Kemp for a 2 month rental I will go bonkers. Teixeira will not help us here, and there is no possibility of signing a long-term contract with that guy. Boras is his agent.
