If he equals him... We got a very good player, and being disappointed with that is ridiculous. If we get a better player, then everyone should be ecstatic. Generally speaking, the expected return around here is completely out of line with reality... This is another example of it.
i agree. if he turns out to be jordan staal i would be happy as a pig in poop. i just think some people were misunderstanding Chris' point that he has the potential to be even better.

if he turns out like jordan, eric or anywhere in between homer won that trade.
