Some reaction to the trade:
Oakland did extremely well to turn two rentals into top prospect (Holmes), should-be closer (Montas) and a guy with monster change (Cotton).— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) August 1, 2016
Man, that’s a stiff price for two rentals. https://t.co/aTGa2z1kt1— David Cameron (@DCameronFG) August 1, 2016
