Starting to get on board with this thread. We need a first baseman and starting pitching, so instead of trading for that, Rizzo takes one of our prime trading chips and flips him for a reliever and an outfielder? If this is not part of some bigger plan I might pledge allegiance to another team.

31 year old OF with bad back, bad knee, and never above 2.9 WAR is not a prime trading chip.  The return is a 23 year old reliever who some project to a closer and a CF who just needs solid production in AAA to be ready.  That's a good return.
