There's definitely a limit. I don't know exactly what the limit is. But by comparison, even if Didi Gregorius turns into an all-star shortstop, I still love the Choo trade even if it turns out we only get him for one year. I will especially like it if they can make hay with the compensation draft pick and bonus money.
