What We Really Traded Away

I was cruising around and I guess I hadn’t really realized that we traded our ERA leader AND home run leader to the Brewers.

Now in most contexts, I’d say that’s rather unprecedented, but considering our home run leader did so with an unexpected career high and tied a player on the team who was DFA’d on August 5th, it’s not really a momentous loss.  And while we know what Greinke’s ceiling can be (and have covered that he was a bit unlucky in 2010), his ERA was right at the league average.

Still.  That looks weird.
