Who did they give up?

#23 prospect, a speedy 2B/SS type guys who the first article i saw on looking him up read the headline was 2018 was a lost season for.  Beyond that i know nothing other than the stat line... which was a 246/292/339 at Midland TX

Two 17 year olds from Venezuela, an outfielder and an infielder.

I see you're a big fan of Jerry Dipoto.

No just not letting things become self fulfilling.    The rules dont say you HAVE to wait till the last second after all.

Flop make up your mind.  You just had a thread about not making trades just to make trades and the importance of acquiring impact players.  Yet you are giving them props for picking up the definition of average/below average. 

one has nothing to do with the other.  Im not suggesting i would have done this.  Im simply saying that they saw a move and made it.  You do not have to wait if you plan to move.   They had a need they acted, its that simple. 

would i like to see the club do something, of course, but the right something as stated previously.  we dont have to wait 2 more weeks to do that if its out there is all.   Whether or not it is is another debate

Unfortunately, the majority of the world prefers to wait until the last minute before a deadline to act.  I think it is human nature.

It takes two.  Always has.  

Of course it does,  but others are obviously willing.
No that doesnt necessarily equate to the right deal for us.

Right.  But since it takes two and prices seem to go up in the days leading up to the deadline why would a selling team trade a guy before he has max value?  Especially when we arguably aren’t looking for a guy like Bailey but probably someone better.
