    We're talking a can't miss Andy Marte or Lars Anderson . For a potential  W.S. game winner (thats gm 4 ) against the Phillies. Plus 2 years under a reasonable contract at  14 to 16 W's per year. I'll agree that might be a little optamistic, but is it Brady and Schilling for Mike Boddicker ?

    Boddicker is an interesting choice. His career stats at the time:

    3.73 ERA - 1.289 WHIP

    Ubaldo career stats:

    3.62 ERA - 1.279 WHIP

    Your point about Middlebrooks is well taken in that he like Marte was is a top ranked 3B prospect.

    Then again are you glad that the RS didn't trade Lester, Lowrie, Masterson and Crisp or Ellsbury for Johan Santana?

    Boddicker did initially work out well for the Rs in 1988. He was 7-3 with a 2.63 ERA and a 1.274 WHIP.

    Ubaldo's numbers this year haven't been great. His ERA is the highest it has ever been since he became a full time starter (4.20). His WHIP 1.336. He is on a pace to give up more HR than he ever has before and his team wants to move him in spite of a team friendly contract.

    This is not a no brainer. The guy has electric stuff that has never been completely channeled with the exception of half of 2010 BUT the fact the Rox are willing to move him and his 2011 stat sheet should give observers at least a moment of pause.

    There's something to me that smells fishy about Ubaldo Jimenez, even though I don't know if there's any reason to think so. Why dangle a guy with his talent considering the need in the market and the number of years on his deal that are left? I just don't get the deal from the Rockies' perspective. Something seems off.

    Hey fivekatz Thanks for the homework.
    Super research,  I'll give you that yes Lester and Jacoby for Johann would have been a train wreck. And yes Masterson was Lights in the 07 WS but his time was up.I like I said in the other post this is a no brainer. Trading Reddick and Duberont is the equivelant of Lowe and Variteck for Slocumb, OK ,I might be a little drastic
