I think we all know this but just over a year ago the Spits gave up 2 2nds and 2 3rds for Adam Bateman. This is a huge year for his development and if he struggles those picks really could have been used in a better way through trade or to have them after these sanctions were levied. I was in favor of this trade at first because I thought they were really pointing to contention in a few years but with sanctions and struggles so far it's a team in flux. If you were to label the Spits as a stock I would look at them as a hold/sell, if they struggle during the season definitely a strong sell.
