The padres are a major league baseball team. Denorfia is a legitimate major league caliber position player. He also gives them a good deal of roster flexibility due to his versatility.
Again, this is a wrong conclusion.
You can repeat yourself however way you want but it's still repeating yourself without adding any additional analysis or information.
Your argument is that the Padres should be willing to make themselves worse just 'cuz. It's a weird argument.
You still haven't explained why I'm wrong, so I'll try to explain it another way.
I agree with Billy Beane. Either you're contending or you're rebuilding. It makes no sense to be anything inbetween. The Padres clearly should've rebuilding. Keeping Denorfia would be continuing to be inbetween.
And I'm not saying the Padres should be willing to make themselves worse just because. They should take a commodity that currently has zero value to them and turn it into one that does.
