That's Billy Beane for you.

Way to get rid of all your good pitching talent to get an aging Coco and an unproven Cespedes in the outfield. I liked Moneyball as much as the next guy but this is just dumb. They still have 0 chance against the Rangers and Angels. Huge waste of money

I came here to type this exact sentence. Can't imagine being in a pitcher's park on a team with nobody in the lineup to protect him will help his career get off to an easier start.

4 years and $36MM seems like an overpay to me. I was expecting something close to that dollar amount, but I thought it would be on a 6 year deal. I'm glad the Reds weren't in on him at that price.
