Building a team that lasts is all about buying low and selling high. We do buy low for the most part ( I still question the purchase price of MS) but I don't think we have ever sold high or sold at any price for that matter. I take that back I think we got something for someone last year, but we did not sell high.
Just my opinion.
Were getting a 3rd for Mario through comp picks, maybe no one would give us anything better....knowing we wouldn't keep him anyway.....sometimes its not what it seems.
