I'm not getting too up or down on these prospects- they've basically been with the White Sox (Cooper for the pitchers) for a few weeks, and Arizona is a very tough place to really assess players- especially pitchers.

Give them a few months in the minors- then we'll know what we really have.

But, but, but NOT A FAIR TRADE!!!

The idea that Quintana's value is just as likely to go up as it is to go down is not an idea that is grounded in logic.
Me too, but only if the price is right. It is conceivable that the price could be "more right" in the future is my only point. Hahn would know bette than anybody, given the return on Sale and Eaton I'm willing to have faith in his discretion on this one. Worst case scenerio, we keep Quintana...that isn't exactly the plane running into the side of the mountain.

Saying something is possible does not equate to saying just as likely, btw.

We really won't know what the new players have until 2018. Many of them will see limited time in a very painful 2017.
