2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesJay,

Don't hit too hard, it's not like you took some kind of anti-stand or something and the whole world thought Cory Wade would have some impact -- everybody hid him as some kind of lineout-esque kinda dude. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesI feel like we missed on Cory Wade this year. He was a lineout in BP08 at the back fo the chapter, and while we allowed for the possibility that he might see Dodger Stadium this year, his 2007 numbers and obviously this performance this year certainly merited full entry status.

I beat myself up about that one a little. (Jay Jaffe)
