Meanwhile, we're left with a depleted farm system and his contract as opposed to Edinson's. Disaster.
This has zero to do with the trade which, by the way, is way too early to judge. Maker, as usual, is claiming things that are just flat out false. Quit defending it even if it meshes with your premature thought about the trade.
