The Yankees' recent acquisition of Vernon Wells isn't nearly enough to fix a roster full of holes.

As is normally the case, things were quiet on the trade front late in spring training as teams would rather play the wait-and-see game in hopes that they’re at least as good as they expect. 

Outsiders, like myself, don’t have to be as optimistic when looking at a roster, though. Certain teams, at least on paper, are not good enough to stick around in the divisional race more than a few months. 

Many of these teams, the Astros and Marlins in particular, are more in a rebuilding mode and not looking to trade away minor league talent in order to better their chances in 2013. Other teams that expect to contend for a playoff spot could find out rather quickly how necessary it is to look outside the organization for help.
