Nova beat the Astros twice this season, once in a game where the Sox roughed up Cole in Houston and a complete game four-hitter in Chicago in August. Suggesting Giolito would have helped the Nationals in the World Series based on Giolito's win in Houston is really no different from suggesting the Nationals would have dispatched the Astros quicker if they had acquired Nova.

Considering that the Nationals had never won a postseason series until this year, despite drafting Strasburg and Harper in consecutive years and winning the NL East four times between 2012 and 2017, the Eaton deal is looking this October like it worked out for the Nationals. Maybe when Giolito, Lopez or Dunning wins a postseason game for Chicago, we can say the deal worked out for the White Sox.
So if Giolito continues to have seasons like 2019 but doesn’t win a postseason game, the trade is a failure? What if the White Sox win the World Series but Giolito doesn’t win any games?
