Something along the lines of:
I'm not interested in trading for closers, or any relief pitchers for that matter. I think finding a good reliever is more a matter of throwing what you have to the wall to see if it sticks, in a Krivksy-like manner. Granted, what Wayne has been doing so far has obviously failed, trading for guys is not the answer, either. Just ask Gary Majewski. I would much rather see what we have with Burton, Coutlangous, McBeth, Guevara, Roenicke et. al. than trade one of our most valuable chips for some relief help. I am in favor of moving Dunn given the right deal, but for me that criteria includes starting pitching, not relief.
