    What if Felix Pie got traded?

    Oh wait, that actually happened today. He got traded for Garrett Olsen and a minor leaguer. I like the trade.

    Re: What if Felix Pie got traded?

    Yay, a couple of pitchers I've never heard of.

    Doesn't matter much though, as it was obvious Pie just wasn't going to be able to cut it in the majors at this point.

    He's just 23, correct? With sporadic playing time?

    Actually Olsen was the pitcher that was rumored to go to San Diego as part of the 3 way deal for Peavy. So this trade could get those talks revived as soon as the team as been bought.

    Hmm. Didn't realize that. I thought we'd hear more about those Peavy trade talks again after DeRosa was traded but its been pretty quiet.

    Now that Harden has gone Mark Prior on us, getting Peavy would be even better as he is very durable.

    Re: What if Felix Pie got traded?

    I think harden's arm troubles (although nothing new to people who follow him) have made hendry decide to really go after Peavy. If they get peavy then Harden having to hang on the DL for a while doesnt hurt that bad

    Right. We'd still have four real solid starters, with Zambrano, Peavy, Lilly, and Dempster. As long as Rich Hill or somebody could fill in the fifth spot for a while, we'd be well set.

    If Harden turned out to be OK, and somehow durable, then we're back to the incredible rotation we all talked about when this trade was first mentioned as a possibility.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Rich Hill is done. He can't even get the ball past minor league hitters anymore. The 5th spot would likely be held by Sean Marshall.

    Rich Hill is done but if we make the trade there will be no Marshall. He will most likely be in the deal.

    Re: What if Felix Pie got traded?

    Weird move for Baltimore. I know they didn't give up much, but Pie isn't going to beat out Adam Jones, and I don't think Pie will be able to provide enough offense to let him start at a corner OF spot. I guess he could be a lefty speedster off the bench.

    Re: What if Felix Pie got traded?

    the 5th starter would be Guzman or Samardzija should Marshall be traded and Harden was injured.... either that or bring in a veteran like Randy Wolf

    Good options. I can see good things there. The 5th starter doesn't have to be dominant, but solid.

    I had high hopes for Pie, too bad he never emerged while wearing a Cub's uni.
