In response to jimedfred's comment:
I like Carp a great deal so far, and see him taking over for Ortiz down the road. But why not try to keep Napoli too, all he's doing is leading club in RBI ?
What is it with so many people wanting to mess with success ? Trades , letting key parts walk , etc.
Now if we could somehow acquire Giancarlo Stanton WITHOUT selling the Farm ? Hmm.
Sure.... will Lackey & Drew cover it?
The Stanton thing is over-done here also. Who do you want to sit when we magically acquire Stanton... Victorino, Ellsbury, Nava/Carp? God knows we need to get his .228avg, 3hrs, 9rbi into this lineup stat!!!

IMO Stanton would take playing time away from Gomes vs. L/h and probably ShaneVic vs. r/h.
His presence would allow trading either Ellsbury OR Victorino, and would be a huge pickup for now and the future. That said, he'd cost us AT LEAST something like a package of : Cecchini or Almanzar; Vazquez or Swihart or Lavarnway; Brentz or Hazelbaker or Kalish; and one of Webster, Britton, or Ranaudo. Feel free to post feedback iif you think I'm being unrealistic .
I could live with that deal, teeth clenched and squinting, if he helped us win 2 W.S. over 4 years.
