    So now ones opinions are Irrelevant? That's like saying I purchased a condom but chose not to use it and now I have twins from some skank at a party.
    Ha.

    But, you're opinion is not irrelevant. Rather, the primary intention of this trade puts value on youth, but moreso on winning in 2013. I'm not sure why you're putting so much emphasis on grabbing a plethora of prospects when the DBacks actually received 4, then Prado.

    Would've been tough. Dempster would have to bulk up a little and become black.

    Lets just say we will agree to disagree then. Too much off-topic talk for my liking to want to continue debating this since this particular discussion wouldnt relate to The Cubs.

    So now that Arizona has Prado and chance they deal him? What would it take the Cubs to get him?

    I'll save my off-topic, 3 page debates about the DBacks for Gato then.

    Ha ha ha...where did I do that? I am just saying to optimize value they should entertain using the condom to prevent further damage. Towers might have a lot of kids running around from the looks of how careless he has been with his Chris "Johnson".
    BUTTERFLIES AND RAINBOWS!!!!! JP611 Just called me an ecstasy user!!!! WTF!!!

    Welcome Tyler Kolek or Brady Aiken or Carlos Rodon if not one of them say hello To Alex Jackson.

    why in the world would Arizona want to flip Prado now? Cubs could just wait until (if) he hits FA and sign him.

    The second part might not be as hard as one would think...depending on your definition of black.

    No chance they trade him. None.

    Considering they were going to take all prospects for Upton, I guess they would flip Prado a prospect or prospects. And with him only having one more year of control that is another reason they would want to flip him.

    If he is dealt IMO it would be at the deadline...Towers has done some pretty silly things so nothing is off the tables for him.

    Another team out on Bourn. So much to be done. We sign Bourn, where does that leave Jackson? We still need to clear up room on the 40 man. I feel that there is still a lot of potential left in this offseason.

    Keep Jackson in Iowa til the trade deadline and deal Bourn.
