But, in Neal’s defense, he should  get more credit for the Nady and McLouth trades. When you’re dealing for prospects, well, there’s a reason they’re called prospects. You just never know.  No GM hits on every one of their trades. Yes Bay was our ‘biggest chip’, but we more than made up for it with other deals.

JMHO

Maybe Morris will become shut down reliever.
