Looks like a great trade.
We have young arms in the minors in Banuelos and Betances, Nova here now, and Noesi too, before Cash decided to throw him in. He's got a good future, IMO.

Who's our hitters in the minors? Montero was our future stud in the lineup along with Cano for years to come. All these young arms are getting severely overrated in Gio and now Pineda. It's not like Pineda is some proven arm.
