Thoughts on proposed blockbuster
It is sounding like the reported three-way blockbuster between the D-backs, Yankees and Tigers has cooled, but let’s review what the FOXsports.com report said last night:
D-backs give up:
Now, obviously without knowing the identity of the two prospects it’s impossible to fully evaluate the deal, but two thoughts jump to mind:
1. You can see how this makes sense for the D-backs in terms of getting two pitchers for the price of one. Plus that would free them up to spend the bulk of the $10 million they have left to spend this winter on shoring up the offense rather than having to get a free agent pick up someone’s bad contract in order to land a starting pitcher.
2. Boy, it sure would be hard to part with a pitcher like Max Scherzer, who has such a tremendous upside.
Even if the deal is not likely to happen, I am curious as to your initial thoughts/reactions.
