Must-Click Link: What do the GMs really talk about at the trade deadline

Aug 2, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

Ed Wade

If you liked that little one act play I imagined involving Theo, Jack and Ned in yesterday’s Power Rankings, you’ll love what Grant Brisbee has done with his power rankings over at SB Nation today.

I won’t give any of it away, but I’m pretty sure he totally nailed the Ed Wade/Frank Wren conversation over the Michael Bourn trade.

    hey Craig.. take a backseat to your boy freeman…and learn how to write a good article…the thing u write my little brother can do…and he is only in 6th grade…..quality of articles is more important than quantity

      This is the kind of rif-raf that hangs out at PFT and makes their comments section unreadable.

      I bet the lock-out being over was the “Greatest Day of his LIFE!” LIFE!

      illcomm, do you know what the purpose of a blog is? Everything you write on this site is in complete contrast to what the site is intended for. If you would like, reply with your email and I will link a million shitty websites that you can go and bitch about all day. Please!

    illcomm = Troll King

      Trolling is a skill. illcomm has zero skill at even being a hateful douche. That’s pretty sad, actually.

    Craig, thanks for the link. Without you linking to it, I would not have found it in a million years. What a highly valuable service you provide for free, now I don’t have to search the internet for fun articles about baseball because you do the searching for me and I can find links to all of them right here.

      sorry forgot to close the…

      • paperlions - Aug 2, 2011 at 2:21 PM

        Still no edit function, eh?

    I felt like such a nerd for laughing my ass off at that…

    • shaggylocks - Aug 2, 2011 at 2:23 PM

      The link, I mean, not the trolls.

    Next time don’t call up and ask for my best players, and I won’t ask for yours!

    And Ed Wade still has a job today……… How?

    No seriously….. How?

    • sportsdrenched - Aug 2, 2011 at 4:21 PM

      With the new onwer coming in he’s most likely drawing a check and Honeybadgering it.

  7. sportsdrenched - Aug 2, 2011 at 4:22 PM

    As for the original link. That’s one of the funniest things I’ve read all week.

  8. illcomm - Aug 2, 2011 at 4:49 PM

    Craig…why so defensive…you called me a hateful douche…..your just classless

    • shaggylocks - Aug 2, 2011 at 4:53 PM

      No, he actually said you had no skill at being a hateful douche. You apparently have no skill at reading comprehension, either.
