-Let the trade deadline pass without trading Corey Hart at what was likely the height of his value.
-Fail to move Prince who is now just winding down rest of his time in Milwaukee as his trade value rides along a time-based return curve.
-Go on a 4 game skid leaving them 10.5 games back (with Wolfy on the mound today, I don't have much confidence that this trend will change).
Have now decided to let Mat Gamel play right field and 1st base at AAA Nashville in hopes of expediting his promotion to the Majors. This is a major CYA move for the Crew who will likely be losing Prince and Corey Hart after 2011.
Given Mat Gamel's injury history, I'm hoping this attempt at versatility is to increase his trade value.
