Those that believe KP is willing to trade anybody other than his core group of players is fooling themselves. He is not willing to trade Blake, Travis, Rudy, Webster, and maybe, Bayless. He has a group of 3 to 4 players he wants and will do anything to to get them without giving up these players, PERIOD.
With stealing players like Roy, Aldridge, and Rudy, he has a taste of the easy.
Hey KP. You got "lucky" getting those players. Skill, or not, this won't happen again. The rest of the league understands what you are trying to do. You have to give up somebody to get somebody. Whether or not they make a move this off season is contingent on the fact that he will not include those core players in ANY trade.
What this means is that KP will be forced to give up one or more of his core group of players to get a player to at the All Star break next season. More likely than not, he will make a bad move, maybe moving two of these players that will either pay off or may put us out of the championship race for years to come.
One last thing... sign Roy and Aldridge. Lock it down and let's go forward.
