Whether you got him for nothing or not doesn't matter now. What matters now is acquiring the players who will do the best for the rest of the season. The money or high draft pick you spent on so and so player doesn't mean you have to stick with that player. You can't get those dollars back or that draft pick back. You can only move forward and make the best decisions from here on out.

Looks like there is at least one other economist in the room. Its funny, once you grasp the sunk cost concept, you see it everywhere. And far too often, people just don't get it. Yoda is saying 'most people' don't honor sunk costs, and I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he isn't one of them. Otherwise, he's far outgunned in a logical sense on this one.
Really though, this thread is silly. I didn't post in it earlier because I thought it would just die off. How exactly does one sell high on Bedard right now? I don't recall ever being able to sell high a guy on the DL unless you know something about his injury others don't. Bring this thread back IF he comes back and has a decent start or two. At this point, the thread is suggesting that Bedard will come back, throw well and raise his value, then his value will fall (before which you should sell). I don't recall anyone ever forecasting two turning points like that (value down, value up, value down).
