What this trade has me wondering is whether Aeizona's issues with Bauer are more than just personal. His walk rate seems high to me - maybe they don't see his control improving? Something just smells off, and if it isn't the Diamondbacks' brains (which it could well be), then it's Bauer.

Guess I'm just saying we can't truly judge this trade until we see what these players become... and if Bauer was on the market, as we know he was, then Arizona fielded lots of offers over the winter meetings. The fact they pulled the trigger on this one say ls they weren't getting as good offers as we might have expected - at least, not offers that included a good controllable shortstop.
