Very few of us really give Ed Wade much credit for being even and average GM. His past history as AstrosGM doesn't give us much hope that he can really work a deal in the Astros favor. As you read this, it is quite possible that Ed is making his "last stand". He's trying to show us all that we are wrong and that he can bring in the "mother load" for a player. Now as many of you know I am not in favor of trading Hunter Pence; but it's not like I'll tradein my retro Cedeno jersey for a Pujols jersey if Pence is dealt. So here's what we should hope for. Ed Wade could be trying to work Philly over for more by calling off the deal and encouraging a bidding ward between Atlanta and Philly. Anyone against Philly throwing in an addition prospect or maybe even a guy a year away? Neither team can afford for the other to get significantly better right now and Ed has to know that.If it works; Ed is a hero and may even keep his job once The "Crane lands". If he's wrong and Atlanta and Philly take their prospects elsewhere......well we didn't like you anyway Ed...so long.
