You might be right, Gretzky. I'm by no means sure I won this one. I had an extra bat, and I can't stand wasting numbers on the bench. So I had to deal an OFer, and in my league if you want to make a trade, you frequently have to overpay. In a league with more active traders I would have held out for a little more. I won't feel too bad unless McLouth puts up radically better numbers than Holliday, Bay, Kemp, or Rios the rest of the way.
