Shock Value

I know I will shock everyone on BYB but why should the team sell at the trade deadline? The American League Central is a wide open division. Any team could still win the Central. There will be so many teams from the other divisions who will be looking to trade at the deadline why couldn't the Tigers IF they are say only 3 or 4 games out not get a player or two who has an expiring contract, but could put the team over the top? I know the idea of trading any of the prospects is not something the team wants to do, but as hard as it is for a team to get into the playoffs shouldn't the Tigers try and win now?
