A close friend and red sox fan was over last week, and when I mentioned the possibility of arroyo for Wags, he sucked his teeth long and hard. So if the others got thrun in? Yeah, I'd take it, but I don't think epstein would give all that up.

Wade's biggest problem to me has not been stupidity, it's been unreasonably safe and spectacularly unimaginative. That's what every dumb reliever deal was, and the money that chased thome and bell. Now, if the youk/arroyo/some poor stiff deal was on the cards, it's a safe deal, and I'm confident Ed would take it. But no one offers those deals in baseball world. You have to make 'em beg. And Ed just doesn't know how to do that.

ho hum.

On the money, Jason. On the money.

It's easy to armchair QB, but you are certainly right on this one. Wags is the one player we have whose perceived value is actually higher than his real value. We'd get a lot for him, and grabbing a pitching prospect and a third baseman who can actually hit would be a steal for a guy who will throw maybe another 30 innings the rest of the season.
