Now, if Gillick had gotten Sabathia, then you'd be looking at Sabathia, Hamels, Myers and Moyer. That's a freaking scary rotation that could have taken this team deep in the playoffs.
And if my mom had a dick, she'd be my dad. I'm tired of people vilifying Gillick for "not getting" Sabathia, as if there is only one party involved in making a trade. Milwaukee had the best prospect to offer, the Phillies didn't. That's no fault of Gillick's.

Not that I'm directing the above at you, pelts, it's just that plenty of people have irrationally lamented the same point about Gillick "not getting" Sabathia when, in reality, he never really had a chance.
