Yeah, I agree. you overpaid. You got rid of a guy who was looking like a Cy Young candidate AND a 5 Tooler for Aaron Hill who is up and down, Lidge is a reliever who can only help you in 1 category, and Ryan Howard is the K King although he's had a nice month.

i think it's an okay trade. greinke has been just okay since his hot start and wright has no power.

if you needed power (hill and howard) and saves (lidge) then this trade was a success imo. this is the time of year you go and get the players who are going to get you the categories you need, even if it seems like you overpaid. although i don't think he overpaid.
