Re: Heyman says Rolen to the Reds
There are good trades than end up looking bad through the lens of time because of things like injury. There are bad trades that end up looking good because of luck.
Trades can be and should be judged when they are made by rationale and how it helps its team toward the goal of contending. This deal has only one rationale for the Reds, give the front office a reason to tell the average fan we still got a chance this year.
By any measure of helping toward the future it fails on many levels. Even if it succeeds beyong the RO's wildest dreams, it's still a stupid trade.
