Sometimes the BEST deals...

Postby LouisC9999 » Thu Jul 01, 2004 7:59 pm

...are the ones that are never made.

About a month ago I was frustrated with the performance of my #1 and 2 picks (Helton and Beltran respectively).

I proposed the following trades and they were all rejected:

I give Beltran
I get Pujols

and

I give Beltran, Jose Guillen, and Schilling
I get: Abreu, Burrell, Wells

and

I give Helton, Halladay
I get Gagne

I vow to be more PATIENT in the future and not serve up my studs for some instant gratification.

The first one actually would have been good for you. Pujols is the better player. The others though 8-o Wow, I cannot believe you offer those and especially the 3rd, I can't believe it wasn't accepted. 8-o

Yeah, pretty much what I would have said. Sometimes, you just have to wait things out and let things develop.

Agreed. ;-D

First one would have been good for you, but the other 2 were awful. :-P
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
