It just doesn't make sense to take away a guys scouting ability and vision because you don't like his later moves. It reeks of bias.
Cedric..look at it this way. You have to feel the same about all of Wayne's moves if you think that he really liked Ross and Phillips. It is more biased to say "He must have liked Ross, but not Kim, Franklin, Lohse, Mays, Yan, Cormier, etc etc etc because those were just desperation trades and pickups." Ross and Phillips were gotten for pennies on the dollar like the others and we can't look back months later and say the ones that worked out were b/c of WK's keen scouting eye and those that didn't were just desperation moves. If he saw potential in Ross, then he saw potential in the stiffs also.
