Like he repeats what he's done this this year for the next 5 years...OMG.
Dude, the only thing "dumb" is thinking you could get an "Ace" for EE. Aces don't get traded with multiple years left on their contracts. The only time they really get moved is when they are on the last year of their deal and tell their team they aren't going to resign (..like Halladay did). You don't trade core players like EE for 1 year rentals, even if it is for a full season. You use $$,prospects and secondary pieces.
