Okay forgetting about the competitiveness factor...what about the lopsidedness?
Manny's and Tejada's numbers appear to be mid-level
this half of the season. However, if you look at their stats over the
last ten years, they speak for themselves. These guys are perennial
and consistent 100 RBI hitters, 30+ HR hitters (manny) (tejada is more
like 25+), and .300+ BA.
Fuentes is a legit piece. Glaus is a legit power
hitter, but he's often injured and Jojima is okay. But do the three
together equal Manny and Tejada?
While numbers-wise on the surface the trade looks fair, over the years
and with more than half a season left, could this trade be considered lopsided enough to nix?
