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.
you couldn't be more wrong. that's not how i feel.
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).
when did i say that? are you even in the right thread and addressing the right poster? all i said is i think Hood will (and even should) get a shot with this club when he's ready.
