For the people who want nothing but dominance, I think that sends the wrong message to prospects. Presumably, they're in the minors to learn to be a quality MAJOR leaguer. A lot of that is to work on your weaknesses. If you're just supposed to dominate minor leaguers... suppose you have a fastball that's gonna outclass most minor leaguers, but your changeup sucks - and you need that changeup to win in the Majors. Do you really want to encourage that pitcher to not develop his changeup in the minors?
Galvis offers scant value to a potential playoff team. Anybody trading for a shortstop is going to want someone with better defense. I don’t doubt for a second that Mike will take any deal that he thinks it’s worthwhile, but remember that Villar was an off-season transaction and Mike tried unsuccessfully during the season to trade him.
Regarding a replacement at SS, we haven’t tried Lebya so sure throw him out there.
For what it's worth: With the poundings they took from the Astros, the Orioles are creeping up on Arizona for the worst run differential in MLB. The Orioles are at -105 and the D-Backs at -109. The Pirates are next at -95.
