Re: BP: Reds Transaction Analysis-Wily Mo Pena, Ross etc.
I think you are underestimating the boost in value that Guillen got from being a player playing to his ptential (or above it) in the midst of a pennat race.
Guillen got good value because it was a trade for immediate need in a pennant race and because he was viewed as an everyday player.
WMP OTOH, while pehaps having a higher ceiling than Guillen, still is a project and is not viewed as an everyday player by many, including his new employers. (see 3 year OPS split against RH of .740)
