I admire Marty very much as a player. He's one of the best in the game, but he's pushing 40 and certainly can't play forever. This screams desperation from Sather. Instead of building for the long haul, he's trying to catch lightning in a bottle once again (no pun intended).
If we are able to get a good 3-4 years out of MSL, this trade is far and away a huge win for us, and more than we are likely to ever get out of a late 1st and some B prospects, which is what we would probably get for Callahan.
