    You mean Nick ".926 OPS" Punto?  Who'd have thought he'd be the stud in the deal for the Dodgers!  ;-)

    I wish we had a list of the pro- and anti-deal posters from the time.  I do remember Stiffy was anti including his "farm scraps" comment.

    The main problem is that many people don't understand modern baseball economics i.e. post-reserve clause.  If you have a $20m player who's paid $20m, giving him away for free is not a disaster.  Not a great move to give him away for free as he's giving you value-for-money and of course he might be a special player in some way(s)....but then you have $20m to spend on new players (assuming there are some available to buy).

    AGon, for example, was immensely valuable through 2011 (salary $6.3m) but since then he's been fully- or over-priced at $21m so his value has dropped massively.

    It wasn't the "heart of our team", it was the ahrse.

    Good deal for the Sox, and I thought an OK for the Dodgers who needed to make a splash.  AGon and CC have actually done well, and Beckett has been a bust.  The Dodgers are losing because the rest of the lineup, notably Kemp, ain't too good so far--they are near the bottom in runs scored.  Meanwhile the pitching staff is in the lower one third of the NL.  Building a winning team takes more than one splash deal, plus of course the season is a long way from over.  Elsewhere is a thread about how Francona is managing the worst team in the AL, which right now is 2 or 3 games above .500.

    I tried watching a Dodgers game teh other night - but I can't stand wathcing Gonzalez and Crawford.

    The evidence is piling up that these 3 "stars" are destructive.

    Yup, it's their fault, and probably has nothing to do with injuries to Hanley,Greinke, and Billingsley, and the fact that their $160M CF, whom Softy worships, has 1 HR.

    How Colletti has a job is beyond me.  With all the money they spent, they had no SS, a pedestrian 2B and catcher, and a weak closer.  And in what universe is Ethier worth $85M?

    Reminiscent of the 2012 Red Sox (who were six games below .500 when they traded the high-priced Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett).
