Also...great avatar/message below it.
He wanted Figgins pretty bad and had been making trade offers for him since the night of the draft. About a week went by and I thought he'd let it go, but he sent me a message inquiring about Figgins again. I looked at who he had on the league trade block and saw King Felix there. I offered him a one for one swap and he took it.
His reasoning for wanting Figgins was that he needed an outfield upgrade. His best outfielder prior to the deal was Jeff Francouer. He still needs an outfield upgrade and keeps making me laughable offers for Vlad Guerrero. I dunno, maybe he feels like I owe him one.
Either way, I'm happy to have King Felix to go along with Kazmir, Smoltz & Harden.
