Then, we trade away some of our crap in Kotalik and Higgins for a player that used to be a superstar but was struggling, and if nothing else, it gives us an out cap-wise this summer. I don't feel like we've been trading laterally at all, if anything I think our last 3 trades at least have been clear wins.
I wasn't referring so much to this years trades as I was the past 15 years. Sorry, I was having flashbacks.
