Then what is your point? We dealt Paul Konerko for Mike Cameron and we ended up with a .900+ OPS'ing Sean Casey at 1B. Casey was the better prospect at the time (.949 Minor League OPS vs .927) and produced exceptionally for two seasons while Cameron was great in the OF in 1999.
If your point is that we shouldn't have dealt Konerko, it's also your point that we shouldn't have acquired Cameron. Frankly, that's a bad place to hang your hat.
No, my point is that IMO they should've kept Konerko over Casey. I felt that the Junior thing could have happened anyway, through free agency. My point is also that Konerko was NOT given a fair shot while in Cincy -- for reasosn that I don't understand.
Does that help you understand SteelSD???
