We played Raul Ibanez instead of playing Domonic Brown. And now we play Juan Pierre instead of Domonic Brown. Why were we saving Domonic Brown all these years?

Cliff Lee - at a very affordable contract - was traded away for 3 questionable, not major league readily prospects only to sign him back later and lose a draft pick in the process and not have him pitch with Halladay and Hamels for an extra year.
