    Smoking

    Oh, the old "what ever your smoking" phrase?

    Burnett would not Cost Dunn.

    Did Colon cost Guerrero?

    Frankly, I would like to see Toronto's Shannon Stewart playing everyday in LF for the Reds and leading off with Dunn shifted to lst base. But I doubt very much Bowden will deal Casey especially after the season he has had.

    Definition of 'ignorant'

    One who thinks that it would be necessary to trade a 22 y/o specimen, built like Univ of Texas Tight End, with a throwing arm fitting of a Univ of Texas QB, a tremendously veteran-like plate discipline, a charismatic personality, indescribable power, above-average speed, and a relatively miniscule contract in order to receive an overworked (albeit talented) flamethrower, so overworked in fact that he is on the shelf for the remainder of his team's final (ever) season.

    let's see here, the guy is 25 and a potential #1 in 2003 who has an elbow bruise. Why would Florida do anything short of being ultra conservative w/ this guy considering they are probably not playing past Sept 30th?

    no, I am not advocating trading Dunn, but if Burnett were a Red, ask yourself what you'd be commading for him. I can promise you I'd be asking for a young, top of the line major leaguer w/ huge upside.

    Top of the line major leaguer

    Brandon Phillips wasn't one.

    Pena, Larson, Hall, and another pitching prospect would be a good deal.

    Randy Johnson didn't garner ready major leaguers. Freddie Garcia and John Halama were in the minors. Guillen isn't a top flight guy either.

    Albeit, they all have been darn good pieces for the Mariners.

    By the way

    I am not saying Freddie Garcia is not a top of the line guy.

    Precisely the reason the Marlins are co-laughingstock of the sport. Supported by the fact that they ran Burnett into the ground while simultaneously dumping 90% of the 'upside' which they had assembled.

    Carlos Guillen and John Halama? I would say GARGANTUAN pieces to that team.

    "burnett isnt a free agent"

    precisely, so using the Colon and Unit trades as reference is comparing apples to oranges.
