Should've gotten more than just Eaton and a PTBNL.
What exactly has Santiago proven? If he was Cy Young caliber, I would understand this line of thinking...but he isn't. He's a middle to end of rotation pitcher with a little over 200 innings pitched in the majors. Yes, he's cost controlled, but so is Eaton. I don't know what else you would expect the Sox to get for him.
