Re: Yunel Escobar
you'd do that deal. i'd do that deal. i think alot of people here would do that deal. but i don't think the braves would do that deal. at least not in a 1 for 1 deal.
fwiw, the big names in the boston-florida deal were beckett/lowell & hanley ramirez/anibal sanchez. hanram and sanchez were both top prospects at the time especially hanram. in the three years since that deal was made i've come across many boston fans that wished that they still had ramirez. also, bostons payroll has been almost double the reds payroll for awhile now and for a team like that it's ALOT easier to make a deal like that.
