Notice the word "good" when I described Santiago? I never said he was great or proven. He's a good young pitcher with major league experience and some success at the ML level who is controlled until 2017. He needs to command a little more of a return than a mostly unknown outfielder.

There's a reason a contender like the Angels were falling all over themselves trying to get Santiago. They offered us Howie Kendrick before they got the Diamondbacks involved. They see the value in good young LHP. Apparently we do not see the value when trading said pitcher.
