Or how about these guys for Matt Holiday? And I think our talent is better than the Talent that the Cards offered.
My whole point behind this argument is Walt is holding tight with these prospects and thats fine, but not every stinking one of them....We could have easily traded the above prospects for Cliff lee and Matt Holiday and even if only till the end of the year, this team would be in another position right now and instead of watching Deadliest Catch re-runs tonight, I would be excited to turn on Chris Welch. Honestly, here who would not make those trades? Could you imagine the buzz around Ctown if this was our team...and a rotation of Volquez,Cueto,bailey,harang or arroyo then Lee...WOW.....
And the worst part of this all is this is not some wild fantasy dream....this is reality. Does Walt truly hold our prospects that high or is he just stupid and did not even try to make those deals?
That is not at all the equivalent of what what the phils gave up. Try something like...
and someone else
