Perez isn't a impact pitcher, (terrible outside of LA), why should they get a impact bat in return? Trading Edmonds for Perez would be horrible for Cards. I would take Konerko for Perez, and Edmonds with a cherry on top.
Have to agree w/ you here. Perez isn't as good as his 2002, and probably not as bad as last year. If there was anything we could do to get Edmonds for Perez and a prospect or two (not Miller/Hanrahan/Jackson) you do that thing yesterday. Nervous about Konerko a bit, but Carlos Lee would be sweet. Magglio to the dodgers is too good to be true, but that would be worth Perez, and a top farmhand.
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.
