But I guess that the timing of the thread is what spurred my remark. It seems like the OP is responding to BP's off-the-field antics, assuming that they may have pushed some of us over the edge. Maybe I'm wrong, but that seems to be the spirit behind the post. And while I'm open to trading BP, his clash with C. Trent does not affect my opinion on the matter.
I guess it depends on the reaction. Trading BP has always made no sense because he is worth more to the Reds than he is to anyone else due to his popularity here. If that goes away, he is viewed objectively for his on field value compared to cost.
