I like Phillips and Bruce a lot. If we get could get Stanton for either one we are much better immediately.
I don't see the fish trading Stanton anytime soon as there is really no reason to. Unless he is mad enough to really want out immediately, even then they are going to want a ton, and rightfully so.
