First of all, most people are down on Krod these days. I am one of those. After the Rivera 3/45 and Cordero 4/46 signings, Krod is going to demand too much money for a closer. He'll probably be looking for 15+ over 4-5 years or more. It's obvious Krod cares about the money, because he walked out of an extension with us after the Rivera signing and has repeatedly said he loves pitching in Yankee Stadium. Shields and Speier are capable of closing, and we can find another quality middle relief pitcher.
So trade Krod to a 3rd team who then trades one or two stud prospect/players to FLA. This allows us to trade a small piece or two to FLA without losing HK or BWood, or maybe even Adenhart. Besides, FLA doesn't really need a 2B.
Then we have MCab, HK, and Wood, while only losing Krod, who I believe is very replaceable, as much as I hate to see him go.
