I’m sure with the latest news on Brett Myers, everyone is going to want to start speculating on the trade front. The Phillies rotation has been awful this season (but better over the last 2 turns), and if Myers goes down, it leaves a big hole in the starting 5. There have been lots of reports that we’ve kicked the tires on just about every pitcher out there who might be available. Feel free to discuss that here. But I wanted to try and gauge the pecking order right now. So, list the 5 prospects you wouldn’t want to see traded, with #1 being the guy you want to hold onto the most, and #5 being our 5th most valuable guy, if that makes sense. My quick reaction list would be…
1. Dominic Brown
2. Kyle Drabek
3. Lou Marson
4. Michael Taylor
5. Carlos Carrasco
