We are probably going to trade million prospects for Street, that's how Beane rolls.

Snakeskin boots. Gamer. Grit.
I knew some kind of half brained trade was coming. I thought it was going to be a little more disastrous, but hey, I guess Ned's got a little more time to do some more damage.

eh...the Dodgers will be ok with this trade. Cory Wade is doing what Meloan should've done this year but hasn't since he's struggled a bit in the minors. Russell Martin will be with the team until 2012 and Lucas May is still in double A so there is still plenty of talent. Low risk move and he still kept the main kids. If the guy equals one or two wins than that might end up winning the division. Lets keep some faith.

What was the ****ing point of picking up Blake? Ned is a ****wallow c***flap

We didn't need to trade anything, Blake won't add anything that LaRoche could have done the rest of the way...

I don't think so. Surprising only because it didn't happen sooner.

- Ned Colletti on Casey Blake: "He doesn't take an at-bat off and doesn't take a play in the field off. A little more stability. A little more offense. A veteran who's been though a lot of different things before."
