Bad in what sense? I don't think it's veto-worthy, at any rate. However, compared to the earlier trade you mentioned (which included Clemens), I think this deal has gotten better for team B.

In this deal, I think team a does get a somewhat "bad" deal. Patterson would have to play like a monster for it to be even, the uncertainties surrounding Schmidt notwithstanding.

Does that agree with your analysis?

Ok, here is how I see it.

Team B wins.

They are getting a top 3 shortstop and a stud OF. Schmidt is an injury headache and Ritchie is average. He isn't a stud, but he is worth a roster spot and not on the wire.

Team A gets a top notch starter who plays on a team that will struggle to win as the season goes on. They get a rookie from the Cubs who has potential, Uribe who hits a high average and plays at Coors, and then Estes who is on the same planet as Ritchie.

So, Ritchie/Estes cross each other out. EVEN
Jeter is a major upgrade from Uribe Advantage B
Maggs is a TREMENDOUS upgrade from Patterson Advantage B
Vasquez is a major upgrade from Schmidt Advantage A

So, there you have my analysis. Certainly not worth vetoing, but you might want to see what their rationale behind the trade might be.

I'm out! ;-D
