It has to be. But still, we went from talking about prospects like Milledge, Pelfrey, Danks, etc. to Gavin Floyd and Gio Gonzalez?

I'm willing to give it more time to see what else Kenny has going on, but right now I'm simply shaking my head at this one.

Then sit tight and wait until the trading deadline (probably even before that).

I don't believe this is the best offer he could have gotten...this has to be before a bigger move. Freddy should net a bigger return than that. There has to be something bigger coming, right? Right, Kenny? Please say yes.

I guess I have to go with "friggin' miracle" since the posters here obviously make any professional baseball person look like a moron.

I think Gio is the key to this deal. He's supposed to be the next coming of Kazmir.

Yeah, seeing that Ted ****ing Lilly is making what Freddy is making, how can Freddy not bring more than two decent prospects? Maybe the move is to flip Floyd and one of the OF prospects for Baldelli. That seems to work, but we'll see. Man.
