I know there were quite a few people that expected a big return from Joel, but it just wasn't going to happen. I don't think any of the three mentioned right now are going to be much, but we weren't getting a 1-1 all star return.

I do like that Melancon was named today as another player. While he has some HR issues, I think he'll be great at the back end of the pen. Him for Joel straight up would be bad, but getting a replacement for Joel, plus a guy that should turn into a good reliever (think pimental will be better relieve than starter), and a bench guy is decent. Although, we are LOADED with Sands type players.

I however would've liked some return with more potential. I know it wouldn't be an A level prospect, but maybe a boom/bust kinda guy.

The only player on this team we could trade for a ransom would be Cutch, and that aint happening (I hope).
