Let's see what we can get from the Dodgers for Wilson. That's going to give a good read on where this regime is going with the club.

CC and Jack were/are both being pursued by Dodger Blue. If CC can get LaPorta from the Brewers, I'd like to see someone like Preston Mattingly or Scott Elbert from the Dodgers.

I read in the paper the pirates are looking to get Matt Kemp. That would be a great trade if we could get kemp.

Kemp is a natural center fielder, although he can play a corner spot. I'd have to think that getting Kemp would be part of a larger series of events that sends at least Bay and maybe Nady out of town as well. Otherwise, Pittsburgh ends up with a crowded outfield and nobody in the middle infield and on the mound.

The key there is "one day". The Brewers waited until they had successfully built up the farm system, and had a steady stream of talent coming up prior to this trade. They also had a deep enough system that trading prospects for CC wasn't quite so painful. The Pirates are a couple years away from being at that point.
