The report also examines how specific FTA rules ...

"I wasn't surprised by the move," said manager Bob Geren. "Teams are trying to find what's ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Basically, if he stays, all it costs the team was a second round pick in the 2011 draft for a guy everyone knows could still be 20-10 on any given night. " A ham sandwich and a bag of chips" is the shock described on how I read the trade referenced on the ESPN message-boards by the reaction of readers who ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
