While it doesn't hurt to ask, I don't think he'll go for it even with Kuroda. I think the quicker route might be to leave Phillips/Utley out of the equation. I just don't think he'll want to lose 2 players widely considered top 6-8 overtall when the only 1st rounder he'd get back is a nicked Sizemore. You still win the trade without the 2B upgrade.

Cmon Bud NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug testing program down Fehr's fat throat and save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!
