Well it won’t be because right now every team thinks they are in it.  At the deadline not every team will think they are in it.  There will be a bigger supply than there is right now.  

I wouldn't want to be in a bidding war in July with the Doggers or Skanks for Clevinger to make the postseason.

This is what happened: Indian's GM: Hello? Eppler: Good morning, it's Billy Eppler. How are you doing? Indian's GM: I'm doing well Bill how is your family? Eppler: Doing great. Doi

I'll go on record as saying no way do I trade Adell for Clevinger, even as a straight one-for-one. If that means we can't have Clevinger, so be it.

Repeat after me.

Wood was a one dimensional player (power).    Adell is a 5 tools player potentially, and Marsh is at least a 4 tools guy.

I don’t think this is fair.  Wood was primarily a shortstop that made it to the majors.  You can’t do that if your only tool is power.

Wood had a lot of problems that were painfully obvious to see for anyone who was paying attention. The dude was regressing offensively after struggling to adapt to AAA pitching, while his defense at short was not well enough regarded to prevent the team from moving him to third. He ultimately got his shot in MLB because he had been such a highly touted prospect and time had run out on him earning his way onto the team on his own.

I just remember this quite differently.  I recall there being no reason at all why he would not play short, other than the Angels already had Aybar.  In turn, they were comfortable sliding him over to third because he was a good defensive player and that seemed like a way to get his bat in the lineup.  I guess this isn’t really important at all, but I don’t see any reason to pile on a guy that was a bust, characterizing him as having just one skill.  I never ever recall Wood being considered a one dimensional player.  It just so happens that if you completely fail at the plate, you are out of the game.

Eh.  He was not one dimensional as much as he was simply a AAAA player.  Nothing left to prove in AAA but just couldn’t hit in the majors.
