Boggs was a really hard thrower in the rotation too.

As PL says above, it's STUPID to trade talent to force the hand of or appease a manager.

You know, if Matheny would just start playing Oscar Taveras, it would be like trading for an all star caliber bat.

Because Addison Russell is probably worth twice as much as Jeff Samardzjia from 2015-2019.

Or maybe there just aren't a lot of talented players that are age 35 or older in these seasons?

Fun Fact:

The reason they took out this rule is that the league had become less of a free flowing offensive game

I don't think there's any chance they trade Wick for Peavy, or even trade for Peavy at all.

Which is actually kind of smart, imo, because I don't know how you would account for that data otherwise.

No, because Cust fell off a cliff when his usable power fell prey to his poor contact rate.

So a 27 year old 2B/3B with a .288/.337/.413 career line in just under 1200 PA's in AAA is "something"?

Sure, but there's no case in which trading for Cliff Lee comes close to what David Price would cost in terms of talent.

I think this says a lot more about the flaws of extrapolating to 600 PA's than it does about Bourjos or defensive metrics.
