Cash Bail–Crow Trade

May 1, 2017

Cash Bail gives: Paul Goldschmidt

Crow gives: Yasiel Puig, Hanley Ramirez, Matt Bush

I’m told that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. I don’t smoke, but I’m also told that if you have nice cigars, you kep them in something called a ‘humidor’. It seems that Arizona is instaling a humidor in their stadium … to keep baseballs from getting smoked.

We’ve no idea why that is (don’t fans come for offence?) but that’s one of the reasons why we like Cash Bail’s side of this trade: FanGraphs says that the humidor will take away 4-6 of Goildschmidt’s HR in the rest of this season alone.

HanRam, for his part, had the longest HR of anyone this season yesterday, if only fora few hours, at 480 feet. Puig seems to have his head screwed on right, finally, and Bush is going to be The Guy in Texas.

Cash Bail got a great haul for what’s setting up to be a diminishing return. Well done.

    When is this humidor actually going in? Or just speculation right now? Goldy is busy stealing bases these days anyway.
