So it's pretty much known know that Thompson, Roenicke, Bailey, Belisle, Bray, and Maloney are some of their best pitching prospects. Rather than Piazza, don't you think it would make sense to move some of these guys for a C? I just don't see how the Giants or Orioles could turn down a young pitcher and a young infielder for Molina or Hernandez, they both have a need to acquire young talent.
