More Seamheads sniping

More interesting exchanges over at the DMN blog...

Tim MacMahon mentions the "gunshy" quote, and uses it to launch into another "Jon Daniels turned the Brewers and Padres into first place teams" riff...

Evan Grant responds, both to the "gunshy" allegations and the suggestion that getting draft picks for Carlos Lee was irrelevant...

MacMahon responds, pointing out that most draft picks are busts, thus making the fact that the Rangers got draft pick compensation for Lee meaningless...

And Grant riffs on the value of draft picks, along with dissecting the Brewer trade, again...

I've said this before, but I just don't understand the carping from people who want to proclaim the trade with the Brewers a bust.  The Padre trade, absolutely.  The Soriano/Wilkerson trade turned out poorly.  But the Milwaukee trade?  That was one of the better ones the Rangers have made...
