Brandon Allen on the block?

Just started seeing mention of this, and I gotta say, without providing a whole lot of stats to corroborate, that this seems like a bad idea. I mean, what's the harm in hanging on to him and see how Spring Training plays out? Pretty safe to say one of Kila, Carter, Allen is going to make the decision for us and I was impressed with Allen...he struggled after the initial surge, but the athleticism was surprising, and I gotta believe he's got more to show on the upside. Carter / Allen DH / 1B / OF when necessary...? Allen's 25 - not sure on Carter / Kila, but they're pretty close in age I think. Carter still has an option, right? I also don't feel like we're going to get much in return for Allen right now, but, if he shows well in ST...and let's say another of either Carter / Kila also do well...the value increases. Just don't see / understand why we'd shop him right now without letting ST guide us... big big mistake, imho..
