DAF DISCUSSIONS - BAVA METZIA 58

Mark Bergman asked:

On 58a the Gemoro presents an answer of Rabba, then an answer of Reb Yochanan, then rejects the answer of Reb Yochanan and says "Ella Omar Reb Elozar...".

I presume that the "Ella..." is just rejecting the answer of Reb Yochanan, but the answer of Rabba is still valid. Do you agree?

The Kollel replies:

Agreed. However, according to Rabah the Shevuah is not actually on the Shemirah; rather it is in order to collect his wage. According to Reb Elazar, on the other hand, if they don't swear they will actually be liable as a Shomer.
