    Certainly, IF he provides an extra boost into the post season or even beyond, the play-off/WS money could come into play.

    Right now, the moves aren't really surprising but certainly before the season thinking these two teams were going to be the big players at this deadline never would have occurred to me.

    One thing though, it certainly makes things VERY interesting here and now, this minute, today. You're right Kingdom, they've thrown down the gauntlet. Is this just a taste of what's coming for the next few days?
