  • I raised it a few months ago

    And you guys said no. But now looking back do you still think Tejada/Bedard for Prior and prospects was a bad idea? I think it could only have improved us.

    Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

    Our staff would still stink without Prior, but Prior is still young. I don't see trading him away as of yet or then. If I remember correctly, they didn't want to give up Bedard in the deal.

      The "O"s were a little nervous about Priors status and the Cubs being up front about his shoulder. OK, now you get Tejada. What do you do with Cedeno? The guy hit .371 last time out with Iowa and is going to develop into a top tier SS, "and also one you grew at home". Mark my words, and I know he's cooled off lately, but Ronnie is going to end up a real good SS.

      Correct me if I'm wrong but this trade never really got past the "talk" stage right?

        not really, especially once they found out that they didnt want to include bedard in the deal. the O's needed to include some pitching talent.

          Ronnie still belongs in triple-A. If he's supposed to be a top-tier shortstop he certainly doesn't belong in the majors this early when he has a .291 OBP and a .645 OPS and he's being played full-time.

          If we wait until he's not young anymore we'll never be able to dump him off on anybody.

            I think so too, he's very fast, plus I really think he will pick it up on the power side.

              I think the Cubs were crazy not to make it happen. I dont care if they wanted Prior AND Ronnie and maybe another prospect, they should have made it happen.
