Two teams that typically clean up in trades, it'll be interesting to see who ends up winning this deal.

Not to sound cliche but this could easily be one of those trades where both sides win. The Padres get an ace to lead them to consistent winning and the Rays get more young pieces who contribute to their group effort style of winning. Despite the Rays once again trading away a star while he's still valuable both sides and fanbases should be happy with this deal.

Padres didn't get the memo that Michael Hill is gone and they think they can reload their farm off the Marlins as they did before

You know what's scary though?

They haven't even given up much in terms of their prospect pool.

We need to get in on this. ASAP.

Honestly though, which was the last team that basically tried "buying" a championship and actually won the world series that year? Last I remember is the '09 yankees. Something always comes up 

I don't remember the details but off the top of my head the 18 Red Sox maybe.

Ehhhh the only big signing of that year was JD but the core players on the team: Mookie, Xander, Devers,Vázquez, Benintendi, JBJ, workman, Barnes (draft/IFA) and Sale, Price, Porcello, had already been on the team prior to 2018. Then you have the Eovaldi Deadline trade which was good that year and shitty every other season since lol
 

But since my question is who actually went out and bought a World Series the same year they overhauled the team, I wouldn’t agree since that was predominantly a homegrown team with some trade pieces over the previous 3-4 years that won that championship which is really how any team typically goes about it. Other than the 2009 Yankees that went out and got seemingly everyone that offseason

source: my not so secret love of the Red Sox lol

2013 Red Sox maybe? Lol. Although that was powered by Boston Strong and they got some dudes who went off that year.

Nahhhh man! That was A year after a fire sale in which they traded off Adrian gonzale, Crawford, and Beckett. It was 100% beard-powered magic and 25 Gritty lumberjack dudes who decided they were winning that year. Plus you had big papi with one of the biggest homeruns in postseason history (grand slam in the 8th off Benoit to tie the game!) what a season to win it like that after the disaster that was 2012. Reminds me a lot of the marlins losing 100+ games in 2019 then making the postseason in 2020

Ah ok, I was going off the idea that Dombrowski went all in for that one and then the Sox stumbled after that but I guess it wasn't as much free agency as I thought.

I would think "buying a championship" has to be when a team wins a championship after a significant increase in payroll with a number of FA signings but the previous year has to be a dramatically different roster and payroll. 

Not sure if I worded that right but I'm trying to exclude teams who were already built to win but just added a handful of FA pieces "to complete the puzzle"... that's not buying a championship. That would be like saying that the 03 Marlins bought a championship when they added Pudge.
