Here is a made up conversation between Shapiro, Huntington, and Jocketty after the trade deadline. My favorite part is where Jocketty joins: Jocketty: Hey, whizz kid, didn't see that one comin', did you? Huntington: No, Walt, I gotta admit, Scott Rolen caught me completely off guard. Walt Jocketty: Who else is on the line? Shapiro: It's Mark Shapiro, Mr. Jocketty. Jocketty: Yeah, another whippersnapper. How you like them apples, Hotshot? Shapiro: Well, I have to say, it never occurred to me to trade for Rolen there, Mr. Jocketty. Jocketty: That's right, Homeslice. You don't know what it's like to depend on an erratic young third baseman.
