Say those exact words? No. Strongly imply he's going to be considerably better then most predictions? Yes. Superstar...It's called exaggerating to make a point.

You know you're the one who started with the personal insults, and I was stupid enough to join in on your incredibly childish games. To everyone else I'm sorry for that. As for you, well if engaging in personal insults is the only way you feel you can win an argument then you have my sympathy.

Again with the making no sense.

So you don't think there's any validity in considering the track record of the person who evaluated and traded for Bourn? Seriously? Here we have a GM who in the past has frequently failed miserably at evaluating and trading for talent, but that doesn't matter in this case? Suddenly he's become a genius at evaluating talent for trades? Don't you realize the flaw in that logic? Like I said I'm sure Wade's gotten lucky with trades a few times, but his track poor track record is absolutely valid when you consider all the players he mis evaluated.

I'm not arguing that point, but that alone doesn't make him better then a 4th OF if that's all he does. It also doesn't make Bourn more then a 4th OF on a good team, which is how most people viewed him. I seem to recall reading a lot of that kind of talk around the time the trade was made. It was one of the factors in why the Phillies traded him. I've made mention of some of that in my last post so that you'd know my argument isn't based soley on Ed Wade's track record. I've added a little more to it. I don't have the time or desire to go researching articles from months ago for someone who very likely is just going to spew more childish insults my way, but I can say with certainly I remember reading them.
Ok this is the part where you say something about my mother.
