I'm not. I'll admit that I liked the trade a lot at the time, even though we know what the results, are I would do that trade again. He's still like 3 years away, and he had a pretty bad arm injury. He may have been the top Yankees pitching prospect at the time, but he has clearly been passed by Banuelos who is a lot more projectable and closer to the big leagues.
Plus, it really is not hard to replace prospects in Baseball. The Yankees have the best international scouting staff in the league and can easily find somebody to replace him.
I'd be 'fuming' a ton more if the Rangers traded Kreider, than if the Yankees traded Vizcaino again. Baseball is an entirely different beast when it comes to prospects.
