Trading LaRue makes another hole to fill. Certainly can't count on Ross to repeat a career year next year -- that line of thinking (hopefully) went out the window with Dan O'Brien and the Javier Valentin fiasco.
I tend to agree with that, I was really just trying to explain why I felt Larue did have some trade value.
But Larue is one of my favorite players so maybe I'm biased.
