    My, how things have changed...

    Seo's K/9 rate, mental makeup, and mechanics were dreadful. He was a classic case of selling high. Tim Hamulack (good mechanics, but not much talent) was cut by the Dodgers and now hopes to make the Royals as a LOOGY competing with Neal Musser (of all people). Duaner Sanchez (who has good mechanics and isn't injury-prone) became one of the most dominant set-up men in baseball until a drunk driver slammed into his taxi. But he's now rehabbed enough to make the MLB roster, at the very least. Steve Schmoll (who also has good mechanics) is a bit of a Quad A type guy, though is working on controlling his inverse-breaking slurve to get back on the 40-man roster.

        Well, my response should've indicated a VERY definite yes.

          I'll admit I was wrong. Getting rid of Seo was no loss. But if Sanchez doesn't return to form, this trade will essentially be a wash - it would have helped neither team.

          At this point, I of course like the trade. The potential of Sanchez returning to form is certainly better than having Seo.

            I agree with all of the above statement.
