    Maybe his answer to the first question inadvertently answers the second question.

    I only see two.
  6. LOL. Rather than acknowledge which side of the equation a trade really falls, lets just say the whole discussion is irrelevant. Suffice to say, I agree with mdbdotcom's take on this. I did answer your attempt to create sub-categories. I'm sorry that you are upset that I didn't point out the obvious fact that buying a player for $100,000 is, quite literally, buying the player. I realize that you will never acknowledge my point. Enjoy your day.
  7. You can create as many sub-categories as you like. The expression is "Grow the arms, buy the bats," and I think we all know what that means. There is little doubt which side of that equation trades fall in. Not sure what you are arguing about, really.
  8. Well, it certainly isn't growing the arms, right? In a discussion of growing the arms vs. buying the arms, it seems to me that a trade would fall in the buying column.

    Will Roch actually ask his questions?

    You gotta swing the bat first.

    Elias & Mejdal - how excited are you?

    Option 4. Disagree with Options 2 and 3, and Option 1 doesn't quite voice my feelings accurately. Very happy with this hire. I would like to also get Mejdal, so option 1 doesn't apply for me, as I read that to say that the Mejdal hire isn't important.

    As Frank Sinatra once said: May you live to be one hundred and nine, and may the last face you see be mine.

    Suitcase Simpson moved around a lot, but not five teams in the same season. I believe Steve Pearce has played for all five AL East teams, but obviously not all in the same season.
