[QUOTE]There is nothing fantasy about the Padres soliciting offers for fire sell AGon, last winter. Harness, you don't know what you are talking about and are always in a fog. You guaranteed AGon would be with the Padres this spring. The Dodgers would likely agree to a two or three team deal for Kemp that sends Ellsbury to the Dodgers and the Dodgers getting quid pro quo out of one or two from Lowrie, Hassan, Middlebrooks Brenz plus Doubrant or Weiland, with the younger players being flipped to a 3rd team if the Dodgers want a slightly different profie in that player mix. Harness, don't ever pretend to know anything about player movement and value. Beyond a straw and drivel about CERA, your stabs on player movement are completely out to lunch.
Theo isn't likely to make a blockbuster deal like this, as he reacts after the fact and has no clue about player value. I put him one level above you, only because he was smart enough to sign Beltre in 2010 and leave the door open to get AGon for 2011. I called that, every last bit of it. And the Ellsbury hysteria rebirth is as completely out to lunch on his ceiling as it was when he was hyped in 2007. Theo has Crawford and Slackey to prove he doesn't have a clue what he's doing.

Yes, I don't share your prowess about spending thread after thread, post after post about who is going where and when. I just take lucky
stabs. Like when I made one post
on the final G. Kottaras implosion thread in 2009 and said itlooks like a deal might be in the works for VMART. I said Masterson or MDC and a relatively high-level prospect and a lower one for him. I do believe the hyperbole was Buch.
Then in 2010, while I avoided 10,000 posts about AGONE, I made one - repeat one post
on the subject. I said the likely package would be Kelly/Rizzo/Lowrie and a prospect. Then I mentioned I hoped Theo could keep Lowrie for depth.Boom
retorted with "That looks like the most reasonable package I've seen".
Last year I told you the RedSox were going after CC in a big way. You said they would not. I don't spend hours making people think I'm a baseball GM expert. I don't feel the need to. Most of it is common sense.
Nor do I have the need to say I was right every night to feel superior, or simply to deflect the times I wasn't. If you think so much of yourself, why do you exercise the constant need to inflate your ego as if it were a leaky tire?
