Wish they would have kept Sexton for a couple of reasons:
1. He's a good alternative after a trade like this. And even if he didn't start -he'd be there in case of injury. His MLE's aren't too bad and his salary is low. He's always had a good OBP.
2. He's been a good organizational soldier and I think it's important to give those guys a chance once in a while. It keeps their (minor leaguers) morale high and it rewards loyalty. Heck-he's from cincinnati.
