Reasonable people can disagree about McCann, Abreu, Bummer (I would have traded all but Bummer for whatever I could get)...but not trading Colome is criminal.
From which team? Which team made a move for a 1B at the deadline? In order for the player to be traded there needs to be a team that needs that player. I didn't see any team trade for a 1B so that pretty much tells us there was no market for him.
