Your regular defense of Theo Epstein here is one thing but even most Cub fans I know candidly admit the Ian Stewart trade was bad. Trying to find a silver lining on the Stewart deal is puzzling.

I said it was a meh for meh deal.

I suppose you could say the Cubs could have been able to get something of value for Colvin if he did anything like that had he stayed, but he had become a failed prospect. He went the way of many failed prospects and was traded in a change of scenery deal that had nothing of consequence in it.
