The McCarthy situation perplexes me, why pay Vaz big $$$ when McCarthy has perhaps more upside for a fraction of the price. If the Chisox were shopping, I'd guess they'd try to deal him but we've been reading about McCarthy for a while now and he doesn't seem to have a shot.
All Reyes has to do, OTOH, is leave a case of beer in Ponson's locker and BAM, he's in there. I think that stuff wise, Larussa's management style MIGHT have a shot at bringing Ponson back but Reyes seems to have a TON of potential and not really much more to learn in the minors. I was kind of wanting to get him but he got picked up by guys in my drafts so I couldn't grab him.
