We've just seen the disaster that can happen when you overpay for a reliever (Broxton). I mind trading talent less -- as long as its not a massive overpay (The Trade). The Wood-Marshall deal, for example, I have learned to get behind with more time to see the stabilizing effect that Sean has at the end of ballgames. Marshall really is one of the better RP in baseball, and the team has really felt his absence of late.
