I think there is a significant change in circumstances the last two years. In 2011, Sid and Geno were both hurt. You keep mentioning that last year and 2008 Sid was coming back from an injury, but to compare those injuries is pretty much ludicrous. He was out for a few months in 2008 with an ankle sprain. He was out for over a year with a concussion and a spinal injury last year. He had already tried and failed to make a comeback once. Sid wasn't even playing at the time of the trade deadline, was he? Its apples and oranges.
