Worst move in baseball since the Red Sox traded Babe Ruth, all due entirely to cheap ass owners. Motherfuckers shouldn’t be allowed in public without being beaten to death.

Richest person in the state of Maryland and can’t find the money to pay Soto but can take on Hosmer’s bullshit contract. Garbage haul for the best young hitter since Ted Williams. Absolute fucking cheapskates. Every antisemitic slur in the book should be carved with feces into the Lerner family homes. I genuinely have no desire to ever pay attention to this game again.

This will be hilarious if it falls apart when Hosmer doesn’t waive his clause

It’s a sport run by cheap clueless fuckfaces who refuse to pay anyone unless they’re in SoCal or NY.

“He might get something out of it beyond the 3 yrs he’s already owed”

How is this not fucking collusion by Boras to run the league to his own bidding?

Nats only paying $8M of Hosmer's deal. Not that it makes the trade any better, but at least at tiny bit less cripplingly stupid?

Nope. Anyone trying to put a positive spin on this might as well be the person in 1919 saying the Sox should trade Babe Ruth.

definitely not a positive spin, just not taking on a billion dollars in return. trade still sucks, but sucks less than the idea of taking his full deal

None of these guys will ever have a season half as good as Soto had last year and the Cardinals package was better. The Athletics were able to get more out of the Dan Haren trade with the D-Backs back in 2007.

its one of those cases where you literally cant get equal value for someone like this, so if hes not going to stay and youre not going to pay him enough to change his mind, the outcome is going to be shitty regardless, better to get a few good prospects

Not even close CarGo was the only top 100 prospect AZ sent while you are getting 3 guys who have been top 25

1. Cardinals had the better package of prospects
2. He would stay if the Lerners weren’t cheap pieces of shit, what the fuck difference does 440 and 500 million make to literally the richest man in the state of Maryland

im not gonna pretend to know anything about any of the prospects beyond a cursory glance at their rankings on a few different sites, so i cant really speak to which prospect group was better

Jordan Walker is better than anyone in the Padres package.

I guarantee nobody from this trade ever puts up a WAR half as good as Soto did last year.

With only having to pay $8 million of his deal, they should be able to flip him somewhere he'd agree to go, no?

Luckily Ted Lerner is 96 years old so I only have to stay alive a couple more years to deface his grave.
