A pick in the 6-10 range is unlikely to ever be as good as Seguin. And O'Reilly doesn't have his upside; Seguin is the better player.
Would make that deal without ever thinking about it again.
I think the concerns are salary, not the player in question. If they're being so strict when it comes to handing out $$$ to young players, then it makes no sense for them to trade for a player making that much (no matter how good he is) when they could just keep O'Reilly. Yes, Seguin is the better player...but he'll also be more expensive, even with O'Reilly's reported demands.
