Forgot my whole reason for entering this rabbit hole of a thread.
BURKE cannot pull and All-in like AA untikl he has similar the assets to do so.
He has moved a former #5 overall and got a former #2 overall.
Kadri's stock has dropped to much to bother moving.
And you young HF'ers would have a freaking coronary if I suggested moving Rielly, but let' sput thinkgs in perspective.
The Jays acquired RA Dickey, NL Cy Young award winner.
It's hard to compare a pitcher to a hockey player but lets say a Cy Young winner is worth a Selke winner, or a top 3 forward , or a top 2 d-man or a #1 Goalie.
Now Dickey cost the Jay the best Catching prospect in the minors. So it would stand to reason that a Selke winner, or a top 3 fporward, or a top 2 d-man would for sure include one of the top D-man prospects in the minors?
Meaning Rielly is going to likely be part of any package for a top player.
Are you ready for that? Or would you rather wait another year to see Rielly?
All I want to point out is that Even though Burke is doing the same thing AA has done he does not have the assets to go All-in.
