One of the reasons I wanted to hire Kim Ng is because being female, other GMs wouldn’t have a sense of how to deal with her. It brings a new and alien element into negotiations. I think it will be a benefit to her, at least initially, so I’m eager to hear about her first meaningful trade.
If the Marlins and Os discuss Santander I would love to be a fly on the wall during the chat.
There is definitely something to be said to waiting a year.
If he has a healthy 2021, I would say he will be a 2-3 WAR player. That should make him more valuable than he is now and that certainly could be part of the thinking.
My only issue with that is his injury history. I’m willing to gamble that we can get 75-80 cents on the dollar now (compared to what a healthy 2021 could bring us) vs waiting.
