I am not saying I wouldnt want Sharp. I am saying I wouldnt want to pay Sanguinetti + 2nd '10 for him. Sharp is not going to put this team over the edge and make them a cup contender.

I think very highly of Sanguinetti and I see him as a player who can be a part of this organization for a long time and help them both now and in the future. Considering this team isn't going to turn into a cup contender why move away players who will most likely be around by the time they are and can help towards that goal?
