Or Takatsu and Javy for Jones.
I'm not defending these guys- most of them are idiots- but they're probably not just making this up if they're saying things like "deals for Takatsu usually involve..." when they've got all sorts of data at their fingertips.
I agree, thats exactly how I took this as well. He didn't say this is what you WILL get. He said this is what has happened when Takatsu has been involved in trades.
I understand Yahoo deserves alot of critism most of the time. But now it seems that people are just looking for things to pick on without actually reading what it says.
