I mentioned my proposed trade in a chat with a known writer, and the writer called it awful for the Diamondbacks…and he’s right., as I didn’t really include anything of value other than 3 average/slightly above average players with a good amount of team control. Team control, while valuable, isn’t always worth getting, especially if you’re giving up a high quality player signed to a great deal.
In order to get Goldschmidt, I’d have to give up too much, it wouldn’t be worth it, no matter how good he’d look in a Cardinals uniform.
But we could use an impact bat if things keep going the way they are. Any suggestions, other than Taveras?
