    Salary dump, maybe? Kukuk has 4 years left and Street has just 1 left.

    Not a salary dump, actually taking on salary in Street, rebuild the farm system and getting a lot younger. In order to compete with raj and New York I had to revamp the entire team to try and be okay a few years from now and it lets some of my younger guys get some playing time.

    I agree to the trade.

    LOL Wut???

    Holy shit. I wish I had known he was that cheap!!!

    Rule #1 post a trade block
    Rule #2 ask for advice

    It appears Rule #2 was not followed.

    Lol you didn't ask, and well I have been gauging market value for him the last few days and in trying to rebuild the team.

    Market value for a 4* 29 year old LH starter is not a box of peanuts

    You're about to see what a deal for a box of peanuts includes :)

    You traded your best pitcher for what is essentially my best pitcher. He's 24, maxed out development in all likelyhood and has never faced MLB hitters.

    Yeah I'm not about to compete anytime soon so getting a 24 year old that has some value and can start in my rotation and a young prospect also helps me in the long term rather than the short with Kukuk. I've fielded offer for days on him and in the end this is the best deal, as most were hesitant due to his inflated numbers last year.

    At this rate he and pepe Miranda will be in my rotation, the team was a mess so gotta start from scratch and literally had 4 pitchers on the roster before today due to expiring massive contracts and guys flat out wanting a crap ton of money at 36 plus years old

    Love it. Good stuff Shaun. I wish, wish, wish guys would ask for a second opinion. Can lead a horse to water, blah, blah, blah.

    I've asked people over the last few days on value of Kukuk and they said a mid tier prospect or two that's it. The ptbnl is a 4.5 star young prospect so I mean I thought I did okay with that and getting a major league ready Rivera. I guess so far in both trades I sucked, well guess it'll be a long long year in Boston.

    Just curious if the guys you ask actually wanted Kukuk? Definitely find an impartial observer before trading you best assets. What's done is done. In a few years will look at the deal and see how it really played out.

    I didn't read the PTBNL when I first looked, it doesn't seem as bad with the PTBNL involved.

    Ptbnl is Schaef might as well put it out there and see with all pieces if it looks any better.

    I had missed the PTBNL when I commented about this in the CB. I hope it's a good player.

    That's because you are asking people who want him. It's negotiation.

    Tommy Schaeff is/was a 4.5 star catcher. I see it now
