We should do it but only if it makes sense. The prospects make sense. A contending team trading away multiple major contributors does not.
Who said trade 4 of our top assets?
I said I'd trade ONE of Chapman/Stephenson/Frazier + 2 other pieces (Corcino + a minor league hitter other than Hamilton).
The Marlins just acquired three middle infielders from Toronto. I don't think they're looking for another SS, unless his name is Jurickson Profar (which the Rangers ESPN writer said the Rangers should be willing to do- just to put things into perspective as far as Stanton's value).
