I don't wanna make a trade just to make a trade. I'm tired of these Lateral trades.
I agree with the first part, but I don't think we've been making lateral trades at all. The Gomez trade was shear brilliance. Following that we traded a career minor leaguer in Arnason (I think, can't even remember) for Nigel Williams, who actually has some potential. Even if it doesn't work out, it's a good trade for us.
Then, we trade away some of our crap in Kotalik and Higgins for a player that used to be a superstar but was struggling, and if nothing else, it gives us an out cap-wise this summer. I don't feel like we've been trading laterally at all, if anything I think our last 3 trades at least have been clear wins.
