Yeah don't blame them for trying to keep the window open (I would've gone the blow up route) but if enough things fall right that team can compete for the division or a WC. A lineup with Posey, Longoria, Belt, Crawford and McCutchen hitting 2-6 in some order could/should be pretty good.

Then again, JD Martinez was killing it last year and the Tigers still received a horsefeathers return for him. I no idea why competitive teams didn't offer more for him at the trade deadline...

I mean, relatively speaking, I think the Gerrit Cole trade was a worse return, and that one was probably passable (although most reviews paint it as a general negative, which I buy).
But this? For a guy on one year, coming off a "bounce back season", but still showing all the signs of decline? This seems reasonable - two average prospects with some shot at roles in the majors, but don't look like guys who will be key cornerstones or top players, and more likely, role players/end of 25 man guys, if they stick in the majors. This ... seems reasonable to me.
