LAST FISH OUT, TURN OFF THE LIGHTS
Ronnie sez: The most distressing thing about this trade is not that we gave up the final two links to '03 (and two All-Stars to boot) for six minor league players. Honestly, the most painful thing is what this says, in black and white, for the future: Every great player to join the Fish will be traded before his prime. Next up: The great Hanley Ramirez, already the finest young baseball player in the game -- and soon just the best overall. Enjoy his talent while you can.
