I appreciate the Brownie illustration! It helps me out. I agree with this analogy, except I would change it a bit to say that the existing brownie is dry and old because I don't think Sestito's potential was ever very high. So it might be more tempting to take the recipe if you know the brownie you have is not going to be great. But I agree - better to have a brownie period than only have the possiblity, especially when it is remote. I agree - better to have Sestito than a 6th round pick.
