Where did I say anything about other teams' stars? All I said is that Sixto has ace potential. I never said I wouldn't be open to moving him for the right return. I have seen several posts saying things like he has been a non-factor and hasn't been on the field, and all I was saying was that those claims were exaggerated and that it's too early to essentially write him off.
See but here's the thing: the contract didn't look THAT bad at that time. He was coming off of one of the best seasons in recent history, if not ever. He was a dominant hitter and a Gold Glove-caliber outfielder. It only looks bad now because of the injuries. Hindsight is 20/20. I could be wrong, but I don't seem to remember anyone complaining about Stanton's contract in 2017. It's only been the last couple of years with him missing extensive time that it has become such an issue. Do you think the Yanks would want to reverse the trade if Stanton were healthy and smashing 40-50 homers a year?
The fact of the matter is that we literally got nothing of consequence in terms of players in return for a guy who was, at the time, the best player in baseball. That trade was a bad one no matter how you spin it.
