AN will have to find another shortstop to covet this offseason and come up with multiple trade scenarios for.
I'll put this out there, though: Would you have traded Rajai Davis for J.J. Hardy? Davis is probably better than Gomez, but older and doesn't have nearly as favorable of a contract situation. I would have, without thinking twice about it.
Also, like the Akinori Iwamura to Pittsburgh trade and the Jeremy Hermida to Boston trade, this seems to have happened very quickly (what, it's day 2 of the offseason!) before free agents have filed, nontenders, etc. Is this a sign of how the offseason is going to look? There have already been several articles (I'm not linking to Olney's ESPN Insider stuff, sorry) that claim a large number of guys will be nontendered creating a flood of non-superstar type players in the FA market. It's shaping up to be a strange offseason, huh?
