Of course not. But if you're trading top talent for a rent, or paying them a big contract, they need to do more than get on base 35% of the time.

We just traded a pitcher (who would not have netted us Gardner) for our future Brett Gardner and we'll have him for 7 years, not one.

In other news, I see the Yankees will sign Thornton for 2/7 mill. Yikes.
