We do not know that Atlanta wanted Colome or considered him a better acquisition than Greene. We also do not know what other garbage teams were offering for any of the players the Sox were looking to move.

Plenty of teams surprisingly either did not move or did not acquire various players.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
