I'm not going to address unknowns due to the season getting cancelled, although that is a serious possibility, because accounting for that pushes you toward nihilistic decisions that I don't think are optimal if you're trying to build a sustainably winning organization. However, any concerns about his trade value at the deadline are almost 100% mitigated by the fact that his pro-rata salary is only $4 million. During a normal year he easily snags a 45 FV prospect if he performs. If it's a normal year then you 100% make out like a bandit. But even if it's not a normal year, you'd have to trade him for a complete non-prospect for it not to be worth it. A 40+ FV prospect who ends up being a utility man will easily cover the $4 million price tag. Ryan Friggin Flaherty was worth 13 million for us, while getting paid only 5.9 million in salary. It shouldn't be terribly difficult to find a low prospect that ends up being Ryan Flaherty.

English-Americans said of the Irish, "An Irish person is just a [defamatory slur for black people] turned inside out."
