Yeah... not right NOW we couldn't. That's why we should have waited another few months till, say, the trade deadline. I guarantee you that Wily Mo would have turned into AT LEAST another Jose Guillen, for whom we got Harang and (gulp) Joe Valentine. Anyway, I'm positive we could have gotten more if we were patient. Then again, Cast-man sez he is not a patient man. Apparently, neither is Kriv. I feel sick to my stomach.:thumbdown
