I guess they have to decide if these guys that have trade value will be here when things start turning. If you have to trade someone now with value, that is a start to getting better prospects. Sometimes you have to trade your best players to fix things down the line. Just look at the Indians, they are probably going to trade their best player to start replenishing their farm system. Columbus is in the same boat. Unfortunately the don't have a Lindor type talent to draw top prospects.
