    There is still the issue of where he would play.  Neither Youk nor Papi were sitting.

    True enough.  I think of it as a strange sequence of moves.  You trade for LaRoche, then after a few games you trade him for an inferior player.  That's a strange way to do things.

    Only if you look at it as discrete moves.  If you looked at it as a 3-team trade, with us giving up a couple of no names for Kotchman, posters, not including the whiners, would've thought it was a great move.

    It's a series of moves.  You can't separate them.  Theo saw that no one wanted LaRoche, so he snatched him up, and then flipped him for another useful piece.  It's like you know someone that  wants a '67 Mantle card, and someone else that wants a '58 Williams.  So you trade your '67 Mantle to person A for his '58 Williams, then trade the '58 Williams to the second person for his 41 DiMaggio card.  You made a great trade.  If the interim card, the '58 Williams, goes up in value, it doesn't really matter.  It was never the card you actually wanted.
