Question of the day: Today's question of the day focuses on Luke Scott. Namely, what to do with him. His name is usually prominent in trade discussions as he is a good, not great player, who is a little on the old side to be considered as a potential piece of the next great Orioles team. In 2010, however, he was easily the best offensive player on the team. Given the 2010 putridity and current uncertainty of the O's offense, does it still make sense to trade him to fill other needs? If so, what do you think he's worth and what would you like to see in return? -Stacey
