I read most of the comments, and I think this is a good summary. While I wasn't counting, I think those in Category A are the clear majority.

Several posters were critical of Elias making trading Cashner so early, eliminating teams that will try but fail to acquire higher-value starters and might then lower their sights to Cashner later in the month.  

Us homers will spin it that ME was proactive! 😛

Manfred can grudgingly change the parameters of baseball,  but DON'T change the very game of baseball.

We're playing a good game. Just can't score.

Esh is pitching a good game. Eating innings.

I'll be interested to see what Oakland gave up for Homer Bailey today.

Bailey is a year older than Cashner.   His stats this year aren't nearly as good even though he pitches in less of a hitter's park.   But their FIPs are about the same.  

Bailey is on a 1 year, $23M contract so if you ignore the vesting option that Cashner has, that is similar too.

If KC got legitimate rated prospects for Bailey, that would make me more disappointed in what we got for Cashner.

I think he likes the fact people are talking about it. Publicity.
