Buy or Sell: Is there any question?

Myron basically says while the argument can be made to build for the future, and it's not crazy, he doesn't agree. "[A]dding a couple of legitimate players at the deadline will only increase the likelihood that [the Padres] will be playing post-season baseball this season, and if not, at least be in contention through September. It is not easy to build a .588 team with a good shot at the playoffs, so once it happens, even if by accident, it doesn’t usually make sense to disassemble it." He also echoes a point that Wonko made the other day, that while it may make sense to trade your star players for "can't miss" prospects, they aren't really "can't miss" and there's inherent risk in that course of action that isn't being acknowledged.
