    This comment's been picked apart but how about this as a standard;
    It's a good move if it makes your club better and you don't give up any talent.

    I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. Which comment has been picked apart?
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner

    I just meant everyone had jumped down your throat about that comment.
    I didn't want to pile on.
