How does Bavasi have a job still?
Maybe this time Bowden told Bavasi that he had the Cardinals on the phone offering Carpenter and Pujols for Vidro and that he was going to take the deal unless Bavasi said yes to this trade in three, two, one -- DEAL!
O.K. Bill, you decided to take the deal. Now let's see how good a deal it was. If you had said no deal, you would have taken the last case left, which was the Phillies. O.K. Shauna, open the case and we'll see what the Phillies were looking to unload. Pat Burrell! O.K., so Burrell could have been yours. Now let's look in your case. Jose Vidro. I'm so sorry Bill. Oh, and it looks like your new case is already broken.
Alright, let's meet our next contestant. This next man is a king among giants. When asked if he would consider signing Julio Franco this season to fill the void at first, he said, "Maybe in a few years. I have to admit, the kid has potential." Give a warm welcome to Brian Sabean!
