Trade Rosecrans To The Cubs.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
I'm not seeking out teams to trade Phillips if I'm Walt...
Because with his age...contract...possible reputation around front offices...I don't think we could get equal value for what he is to the Reds/city/fans.
That said if the Dodgers can't afford Cano, but want to make a name splash for 2B, and come calling...I don't hang up till I hear what they would offer.
I'd trade Fay in a heartbeat. Erardi should get a LTC. With C Trent, I'm on the fence.
I don't think C Trent has quite found his voice yet. He's promising, but he needs to age a bit and lose some of the snarkiness and let the language out. He's a very good writer. Just needs to get a little more comfortable with what he does.
I like Welsh, but the soul of baseball is the writing and the radio. TV is like a bag of potato chips. Writing and radio is like a great steak.
Sorry to hijack, on with the BP trade talk (I'm in the "I'll trade anyone for the right price" camp).
