Illness prevented me from writing a coherent post today, but I was trying to write a piece about the Mercury News article today. A key quote:
"With a veteran, especially a free agent, you have to be open-minded," Sabean said. "Arguably, is it worth more to give a younger player a chance and also get something tangible back (in trade)?"
Yes. Yes, it is.
I had a lot more on this article, but I just can't think right now. Open Trade Thread.
