Well, that's it. Start printing those World Series tickets.

Team can't get out of its own way and trades for a liability who couldn't beat out a 42 year old in Seattle. Amazing.

Olivo's skillset is immensely greater than that of Ross' or Ojeda's. Don't know anything about the pitcher, but Ojeda pure sucks. Olivo at least showed some promise.
