Question for you.

If the Phillies, back in 2006, had traded Cole Hamels (a 23 year old ace in the making) and Jimmy Rollins (a consistent 4 WAR/year, late 20s player still in arbitration) for Matt Holiday (a mid 20s corner OFer with an average .850ish career OPS in a couple seasons in the majors) then what would you have thought about that asset management?

That is a very, very comparable metaphor to Prado+Delgado for Upton, imo. And I, obviously, think it would be terribly lopsided in Colorado's favor.

Edit. Ignore me, I mistook Delgado for Teheran...
