I'd like to be a fly on the wall for THAT conversation...
Kriv: Well Weathers is off limits but let me tell ya about Coffey.
Other GM: I'm listening..
Kriv: Coffey is a great pitcher.
Other GM: Great!
Other GM: Unless what?!
Kriv: (pauses) (snickering)
Other GM: Hello? Is that laughter I hear?!
Kriv: (Hangs up the phone, the room erupts in laughter) "I can always keep a straight face up until the point when I have to start talking about Coffey. Get the Cubs on the line, I want to try again. And no funny faces this time, Bob. "
