even if it would have taken Ellis we would have had a 30 goal scorer locked up, forever, at what in a year or two will be a bargain cap hit...

like i said, I just wish we knew what the GM's actually thought...

but on reflection, Howson may have not wanted a prospect, even one that looks like he can't miss... think about it, he's under serious pressure and if he trades carter and ellis has a sophomore slump, he'd be hard pressed to defend the move, whereas JJ is a more proven commodity.

if Howson was only going to settle for a player who could be considered a top pair dman, right now, then we truly couldn't match that
