IMO a young somewhat MLB experienced LHP like Santiago has more value than a Of prospect like Eaton.
As far as what the Sox should have received, It depends on the quality of the return. I think we should've got two prospects (because that's what Eaton still is) another mid-level pitching prospect would've sufficed.
