BAILEY’S THOUGHTS

This trade seems even to me. I’d rather have McCullers, I guess, and I respect Marshall squeezing an extra shitpick out of an otherwise perfectly fair heads up trade. It’s the 56th overall pick, so Marshall has effectively locked up the draft rights to his choice of Chase Strumpf or maybe, just maybe, Rece Hinds. Oh man, wouldn’t that be something.

Hustle’s TOXIC $.02

This trade is all wild cards for me.I kind of don’t know what McCullers or Andjuar are. With the new IP limit rule, McCullers is protected somewhat even if he isn’t starting, so I like the floor of at least getting some innings every week with some decent strikeouts. If he bounces back to be a good starter, this is a pretty huge win for Marshall.  Meanwhile, the Yankees are surely going to sign someone, will an infielder enter the mix?  Will DH be clogged by Stanton? Is Andjuar the Yankees 1bman after Marshall traded FOR Voit and Bird?  This trade is pretty hard to review, which probably means at the very least it seems fair.

Underrated part of the trade is this is yet another Marshall Trade where he receives a shitpick for literally no reason.  If you think the 4th rounder was the reason Marshall did this trade, then I dunno.  Sometimes it’s ok to say “No” to releasing free shitpicks.  That being said, I do respect Marshall’s love for drafting minor leaguers.  May the FV be in your favor.
