2008-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Three better teams in the NL East than the Brewers, eh? Have you seen your own site's win projections?
(Eric Johnson from Milwaukee)
Getting killed on the Brewers this week. They're playing very well, and adding Sabathia is a huge get--shades of Doyle Alexander so far. However, the performance difference between them and the Braves is pretty small. There's an article in that notion.

Anyway, the Brew Crew is a great story. It will be interesting to see how the bullpen holds up, and whether they keep improving against righthanders. Doug Melvin has done a good job in-season. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey, Steven! Can you recall the last one-for-one swap (no offense to Danny Rey Herrera, who I still love) that paid off with such immediate dividends for both sides as Hamilton-Volquez has?
(Or from Dallas)
First thing that came to mind was Smoltz for Doyle Alexander, but it doesn't really fit as it took a couple of years for Smoltz to develop. That was certainly the quintessential win-win swap until now, though. (Steven Goldman)
2008-02-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)After the recent Santana trade, several commentators (including some on this site) defended the Twins GM, essentially saying, "He's no idiot. He had to make a deal and the fact that he accepted such mediocre prospects means it was the best deal available." This logic makes sense, but doesn't it call into question many of the public/expert analysis and evaluation of trades -- if we acknowledge that we don't have all the information, and we assume that (most) GMs are smart people, how and when can we fairly evaluate the intelligence of various trades?
(thegoldenbear from Newport Beach)
This is a very interesting question, isn't it?

First off, let's start off with the idea that trades can be evaluated immediately at all. Here's a question that sounds obvious, but I don't know that it really is: What makes a good trade? You do want to improve your team, clearly, but a lot of times, even that definition is cloudy. Doyle Alexander for John Smoltz? Well, a flag flies forever, right? Andersen for Bagwell, OroscoFossasRincon for Giles? There are some clear winners and losers in those two, but how many trades are really like that? If a team makes a trade for three prospects who are really outstanding, but none of them work out because the club has a systemic shortcoming in player development, was it really a bad trade? I don't know.

Second, who's interested in evaluating a trade 'fairly'? I don't think I am. I was always of a mind that the writing, attitude, and (often attempted) humor at BP served the purpose of making analysis enjoyable to read. Fairness was pretty low on the list, if it was there at all. It did make for some awkward introductions on occasion later, but evaluting trades at all is an exercise in debate; I don't know that there's any merit in fairness, except to build future credibility for your point of view.

Of course, front offices need to at least be able to do it.... (Gary Huckabay)
