Eh, maybe it was the Phillies shades of the forums I inhabit, but I read countless debates about whether Brown or Taylor was the better prospect - with both being all-stars, of course.

I mean, hindsight is 20/20, but I'm trying to put myself back in the mindset of when that Halladay trade went through and I just can't help but remember how highly I regarded the prospects leaving the org (particuliarly Drabek).
