In fact, has that EVER been done? A team trading their Ace pitcher while they were still in the hunt?
For the record, Latos is my ace. Cueto is my 2. But I can see Homer becoming my 2 by the end of the year.
So a guy like me, I'd pick up the phone and at least listen to what is being offered for Johnny.
I'm very content with the team now, so I'm of a mindset the offering team has to wow me.
