One day before the Mitchell Report was released, Ed Wade traded five prospects to the Orioles for Miguel Tejada - who was, 24 hours later, then named in said report.
This is worse. Because at least the Astros got something back in return from the Orioles. Tejada posted a 6.2 WAR in 2008 and 2009. Luke Scott had a 6.1 WAR from 2008-2010. You can validly question the wisdom of trading for Tejada, but from an offensive standpoint, it sort of worked. It would have worked a lot better if the Astros were a good-hitting shortstop away from the playoffs. But they weren't, and that's why it got panned.
But if the reports are true - that the Rockies will not want to trade anyone at all for Wandy thanks to the raise he got less than eight months ago - then you can expect Wade to pull him back. If he lets Wandy walk with no return, then it's time for Wade to go - as he clearly has no sense of time or space.
With Tejada, Wade was just a hair too early. With Wandy (and Myers), he was far, far too late.
