thats a good point.
Sounds like he basicly wanted Wilken/Hendry/Fleita to run the draft for some reason, which was not a bad idea considering the results and the money he put into it.
The Cubs don't have anybody that would have brought a huge haul at the deadline anyway, I think this was a pretty good assesment on Ricketts part. Marmol, Byrd, and Dempster can be dealt in the offseason when they have less money owed to them.
Even Pena would have brought back at best a second-tier catching prospect at best from reports.
