I agree with hockeykid in the fact that I would in no way accept that trade although he may have been a bit harsh in his explanation.
IMO, when trading an elite player I want to get a hell of a lot in return. Quentin, Victorino and Putz, imo are decent, but no where near top tier players. Is Victorino still injured? Putz, just coming off an injury could turn into a mess (like nathan's first return from the DL) so that would have to be taken into account as well.
I agree that the player ranking, while somewhat useful, is in no way good enough to give it much weight. Just look at how many times it has a player on the DL listed above others? I think it is a useful tool to see if player a and player b are in the same ball park of each other when evaluating, but a lot more needs to be taken into account that those algorithms surely don't.
