Has to be some substantial hyperbole there. Our most marketable pieces that I expect that we would be willing to part with are Alexei and Danks. How big of a future piece could you reasonably expect to get in return for one or both.
Maybe you get one of the Yankees catching prospects for Alexei? But then he would have to move over to second.
It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. - A.
