I didn't read through any of the messages on this thread, but considering that the ENTIRE thread was you talking to yourself, I'd have to say I'm concerned. Message board or no, talking to yourself like this is just not healthy.
I wouldn't count on a contract being inked this year. Internally, the consensus opinion is that we've already put ESRX behind us. I don't suppose an 11th hour deal can ever be ruled out, but it seems unlikely at this point. WAG, as far as I can tell, is happy to trim the fat, dump the low margin business, and move forward.
Maybe this company can get away with "trimming the fat" by slashing its own troops, but trying to "trim the fat" by throwing its weight at business partners and issuing ultimatums is a dirty deal. When you can't play nice, nobody wants to play with you. And to state that this company has already put the ESRX deal behind them is "over the top" in arrogance, as usual. Bye-bye.
