Your Prado/Fransisco/Gattis plan could work, but I'm not high on bouncing a player around the field like that. Players like consistency. However Prado is a player who could pull it off.

Prado to 3B full time.
Actual LF in LF. (As I've said before, I'd do Uggla for Soriano without hesitation.)
Uggla in a box on Memorial.
CF, I don't know. I'd like to re-sign Bourn but I don't see it happening. I will be stunned if they sign Hamilton, big free agents isn't Wren's way, even with a ton of money off the books. I'd rather they trade for someone young(ish). But who's available?

Denard Span might be available for something like Delgado or Minor. Strength for Strength trade.

Span solves CF (and you'd have to chip in a minor prospect to get Minor or Delgado.) He doesn't solve the LF/3B tango. Now, if you wanted to make it bigger and send over Span & Willingham, that would get you your pick of Minor/Delgado and something else thrown in to even it out, I'm sure.)

I'd do Span for Delgado. A known nothing special for an unknown nothing special. Minor, I'd have to think about. I don't trust his 2nd half but if the changes in his game the broadcasters said he made are legit (I don't spend anytime thinking about Mike Minor so I don't know how legit their claims are), I think I would prefer to keep him.

Still too much treacle, self-pity and sentiment. And hope.
