Essentially every move Jocketty has made has so far (or not made) has reflected the reality of a small market team. Dumping Griffey and Dunn, not trading for Dye. Not signing any Krivsky-like disaster contracts (Harang, Arroyo, Cordero, and semi-disaster contract Gonzalez).

So trading EE and a prospect for an 11 milion dollar guy would be a very bad sign.
