I didn't say above that Iglesias should be traded no matter how measly the return. I said he should have been traded. A trade worth taking should have been available. I don't think the guys we got back for him qualify as such, and that's been my complaint about the trade the entire time. It's always been and always will be a small scale complaint, because even if you get a great reurn for a Iglesias you're still only talking about a fringe top-10 guy at best. But Stallings is two tiers below that if not three and the international guy whose name I can't remember right now seemed like even less.
One tier above Stallings is what I wanted, I still think that was a reasonable ask, and if teams wouldn't meet it then I'd have kept Iglesias.
Ok, thanks for making that clear. You still said even if forced to trade Iglesias, you would have been critical of Elias, which goes to my primary point on this. I don't think the guy is committing what amounts to GM malpractice out there by failing to do the due diligence to see what's available. He also probably likes the guys we got back more than you do.
