And even though I think Amir is in the same category as the three players at the top, I could see him being traded sooner than Ed, his value is higher.
But you mention players to move in the same paragraph. I think if you find young upgrades, you make a move. And we are talking about 2 gentlemen in the final year of their contracts who have spent a year deliberately doing nothing to improve. I don't think they are going to want almost an entire team of average players if they can help it.
