    I would like the Jays to trade for Price btw. If we absorb that contract and get a couple prospects in that deal, it's a win win.

    It's amazing to me looking at some MLB trades, how a sport completely ruled by analytics has so many completely lopsided trades.

    Is a huge part of these trades just shedding contracts or something?

    It might be why the sport has a lot of lopsided trades. This metric says the player is okay, but this one says he's really good. These two are used to measure the same thing and reach very different conclusions. GM's can be pretty stupid as well. Like Jeff Bridich insisted on adding an opt out to Nolan Arenado's contract after he said he wanted to be a Rockie for life.

    So many factors go into it Hulky. I can explain the logic of most trades if you have any in mind.

    for example why did MIA trade Miguel Cabrera, Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich?

    surely being a good team in a market like Miami would be worth something

    It's more profitable to be a good team without paying anyone.

    Miami's style seems to be pay as little as possible and bank on the highest risk prospects in order to capitalize when the time is right to spend. They have been big spenders in the past, but never beyond a couple years in a row because it's not profitable to be a mediocre expensive team in miami and the owners have traditionally been in it for the money.

    Bout sums it up. Marlins ownership is all about maximum revenue return. If their team loses 25% of their total revenue income for players, well. Fuck em.

    Good. He's a frigging cunt anyways. Hopefully they ban him from baseball.
