AH, but he's indicating that the player has so much more to bring to the table. Reverse psychology for the other GM's. Plus, I don't think he has any intention of trading Ribby at this moment - he's satisfied (or resigned) to the fact that Ribby will be part of the growing process for the next couple of years or so.

A concerned fan.
