    Who do we sell that is worth selling?
    Who is semi healthy and worth something?

    Reyes? Duda? Granderson? Reed? Gselman? I haven't even looked at the contracts of those guys. But I don't know who we'd give up on at this point who's still young with potential. Wheeler? Conforto? Ugh. Not even Memorial Day.

    I'm good with trading pretty much any veteran that is on an expiring contract and retooling for next year. I don't think anyone would take Grandy, but Bruce, Walker, and Duda should fetch something. I'd also trade Cabrera but I don't know if they'd get anything of value for him. I'm on the fence with trading Reed as the Familia injury makes him more likely to be back next year. Trading a few vets by the trade deadline allow you to see what you have with Rosario and Smith. If they prove to be at a minimum solid players, it really opens up the payroll for the next few years.

    Of course I said that near the trade deadline last year and they made the playoffs so what do I know? Also, if Harvey goes on any type of decent run the next 2 months I'd flip him for the best offer available.

    I would consider trading anyone except Thor, Jake and Conforto. Familia is obviously out of the question with his surgery, too.

    Rock Bottom, a 1/4 of the season in.
    This is a bad team with bad mojo.
    No stopper, so 2-3 game skids become 7. Done

    Anyone else follow Frank the Tank and vlogs on Barstool Sports? I don't know why, but he makes me feel better about myself.

    Is he the guy with the Oscar Gamble avatar here? The you tube guy looks like he is waiting for his mom to yell down the stairs for him to take out the trash.
    "Gsellman? He Guhsucks "was pretty funny.
    Yeah, I feel better about me after watching that
