probably, but it complicates something that's already pretty complicated. If I'm the White Sox and I really want a lefty bat, I don't wait on the Reds to let a cooling-off between Jr and Brantley occur, in addition to waiver resolution, Jr's OK, cash to be OKd by the commissioner, etc.
by the way, if I'm the Reds' FO, I get rid of these announcers. They make my job tougher.
