It may have cost J.P. Ricciardi his job by not dealing Roy Halladay at the July 31st trading deadline.

Apparently, the Suxx offered him 4 good players for Doc, and he refused. He should be fired.

Is Cito next?

The Sux don't have 4 good players to offer unless you buy into the bullshit of Peter Gammons, the Red Sux hoot.

You're 'prolly, right. Read it MLBTradeRumors.com at the time. Not sure I believed it either, especially since Gammons is on the Suxx payroll.

Gammons doesn't travel around looking at prospects. He's based in Bristol, Conn. for ESPN and in Boston playing his guitar with his pal Theo Epstein.
His sources are scouting bureaus and he just flowers up the Boston prospects. He has no personal scouting talent whatsoever.
He evaluates the Tangueray & tonic John Henry gives him in his luxury suite at the Green Sardine Can.
