Really like Ogando, but you're giving up Leake and Didi for him as I break down the trade.
Basically, you're giving up a solid, young affordable starter, a top SS prospect whose MLB ready, and a potential middle of the lineup up catcher, for a closer and a potential middle of the lineup 3B.
What you're getting isn't hard to find. What you're giving up is.
Still, I like you're thinking, just not the particulars.
