Trade Who For Who & Get What?
Major League Baseball Trading is part player worth for player worth, and the business of baseball.
What I do understand is player worth. At least better than I understand the business of baseball.
Obviously, I’m sitting in the stands judging from afar while others more experienced than I are at the controls. Those at the controls have lots of experience, and seem to be doing a good job so far.
This commentary is a reference to the Starlin Castro trade.
On a player for player trade, I believe the Cubs lost out on the trade. The Cubs got two, the Yankees one but, it was a better, fine tuned
The Cubs received statistical mediocrity in return. Pitcher, Adam Warren, and utility fielder, Brendan Ryan.
Within days, the Cubs release Ryan in favor of claiming more statistical mediocrity. The Cubs claim Edgar Olmos on waivers from Baltimore.
To make room for Olmos, Ryan was the man opted out.
Olmos saw limited work in 2015 between AAA Tacoma, and Seattle.
All of this shifting of statistical mediocrity isn’t so bad really, except it feels like the Yankees got the advantage in the Starlin Castro trade.
It may be my limited understanding that brings me here so, I’m open to any explanation making it clear that I have nothing more than a limited understanding.
