Is Rivera strikes me as the type of guy that wouldnt have the "heart" to let some of these overpaid and aging veterans know they will be cut or traded. He really seems like the type of guy that gets easily personally attached to players and Im just scared he would turn down potnetial good trades for players like Beason, D Will and Gross all because he likes them too much personally. We all praise the fact Rivera is a nice, stand up guy. But im just scared he would be too nice in this situation.
Dear Gid make it stop.
Ignore the voices in your head...

So the guy who cut John Kasay, then later cut the replacement he'd brought in himself, and just said publicly that Jon Beason won't be the MLB anymore is afraid of tough decisions?
I don't know where you've been but you must of missed the memo.
anything bad or showing any kind of lack of leadership must be attribted to Rivera........
anything good should be bestowed on the players themselves or attributed too blind luck.

Gamble would garner a lot of interest.
I was just talking about the 3 he mentioned.
Gamble would garner some interest assuming he was willing to sign a new deal with the trading partner, but I expect the new team would not be willing to pay quite as much as he has been getting here. Should we find a partner willing to give up a decent future pick I think there is a good chance he gets moved this offseason.
The point remains, traded players almost never bring enough compensation to make it worthwhile unless you just want to get them off your team for some reason.
