Haha, no I don't remember that. But that's exactly the point. When the Phillies traded all those players for Hunter Pence, I wasn't worried that Cosart or others would turn out to be something special because I thought Pence would be the missing peice. I was wrong, but to me at the time it was just as likely that those players wouldn't turn out to be anything anyway. I wouldn't trade prospects for just anyone, but for a guy like Lee who might be that "missing peice" needed for a WS, I have no problem with it.
