Again, he's not untouchable. Just saying the offer would have to be very good. I wouldn't think twice about dealing Crain and Thornton.
I don't think they will suck for 5 years but I don't think they will really be contending until 2016 or so and since it seems to me that the shelf life of a closer is about 3 years I would probably be more willing to at least shop him around, but I agree with you that it has to be for a high price. Much more than what we would get for Crain or Thornton.
