partially correct. the trade was gleason + future for smolinski BUT we covered all of smolinski's salary for the rest of the year. essentially giving them a free player, no cost.

as for straka and kraft for gleason, that'd be closer to being fair, but if you're suggesting straka for gleason straight up, i'd be laughing so hard. also, how often is straka on his game nowadays? he's nowhere what he used to be.

pittsburgh has very little trade leverage. don't expect to be getting much in return for this trade. he's far too expensive for what he's worth.
