The guy could become a superstar hitting behind McCutchen with the Pirates, and we end up with at best, a very good middle reliever. Terrible move.
And what if Santos continues being Santos? If Lincoln is a setup/closer would that make you happy?

If SS is out then this helps immensely, if he's in then we have a 1-2-3 punch....and you can never have too much quality pitching
