No, but you didn't say PL in particular. You just said that you don't see teams offering up a 1st and a prospect for a 37yo rental.

All I was pointing out was that it has happened before when a GM that was in a "Win now" mode had injury strike right at the trade deadline and he paniced.

The Yotes could get a similiar return at the deadline if Burke is healthy, a "Win now" team has serious questions in goal, and the GM in question doesn't want to take on a contract that goes beyond this season ala CuJo or Khabibulin.

I'm not saying it will happen, or that Lacroix is likely to panic. I'm just saying I wouldn't completely write off the chances of the Yotes getting a pretty nice return if they trade Burke this year.
