Well, firing Wade won't help the team that's on the field right now, but his dealings for the 2004 season show that he hasn't been an acute judge of bullpen talent. Going back to the 2001 season, I've lost count of all the relievers he's acquired that quickly left me cringing every time the announcer mentioned he was entering the game. Thankfully, although he's depleted the farm system in his mad dash to collect as many veteran relievers as possible, thus far the prospects he's dealt have seemed far more suspect than prospect.

But every GM does that. Middle relievers are the most expendable of players. And they're the toughest to figure, because a reliever could be incredible one season and a disaster the next, for any number of reasons.

He still has his top prospects, such as Gavin Floyd. I'm glad he didn't trade him this year.
