Is to trade Lowe to the Red Sox for Middlebrooks/Vitek/etc or some other 3B/OF prospects to make room for Minor, who is no longer a rookie now with 50+ innings logged. With Lester going down, now is the time to do this.
Do not trade for Bourn - he is playing over his head this year and he is just not that freaking good - career .334 OBP leadoff hitter. Do not trade for Pence - he will cost too much in prospects and salary soon.
Minor has the potential to do great things. This could free up some salary for next year and give us a young bat or bats.
