When that trade was discussed I was all for it, and people on the mlb board laughed at me. They all thought that it would take away at bats from Church, who may be a nice player one day, but has come back to Earth after his hot streak. Encarnacion would immediately be the best hitter on our team if he was here. Instead we got Preston Wilson.
While I know you were making a joke, I lament that the trade was not consumated.
