I feel like BA has a lot more oversights the past few years

Re: Cubs get Castellanos for Lange and Richan

The Ricketts quibbling over half a mill is some real looney tunes horsefeathers I’m honestly shocked we won a World Series with these owners in the first place, the way they’ve become Scrooge McDucks all of a sudden is dramatic The fact that we won a World Series with them is a good deal of why the...

Right. If you’re going to do that, why not just wait another year for 29-year-old Mike Trout.
