When an acquisition does as well as this one has, it’s worthwhile wondering why the other team gave up on him? Seattle has smart people,

Goes both ways. Arrieta comes to mind. :)

(vs. ANGELS, 7/28)


Armstrong essentially had to get 4 outs in the 6th inning, due to a defensive miscue by the Oriole defense.

He recorded 2 more outs in the 7th inning before giving way to Paul Fry.

ESPN has an article up about the worst deadline deal made by each of the 30 teams.    Ours is the Arrieta deal.   https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/page/Buster201907251/revisiting-worst-deadline-trade-your-team-ever-made

Given the circumstances, if that our worst, then that’s not so bad imo. He was certainly a much more broken player in Baltimore than Chris Davis was (for example) when he was dealt along with tommy hunter for Koji. 

The flip side here is that we haven’t had a ton of opportunities for a worse trade, really go after it by trading top prospects for established MLB players.
