Hammonds - My impression is that you are a big fan of the farm system and don't think Rizzo gets fair value back in trade, so you are skeptical of trading prospects most of the time.  Me, I have some trust in Rizzo to get fair value, so if he deals a prospect, I'm OK with that. 

Your posts seem to say that saying a guy is trade bait is an insult to the player.  I just don't see that.  I buy into acquiring prospects when you are building, and trading them when you need a piece to finish a product.  I think we are close enough to be working on finishing the product (hence SSS).
