Everytime I see one of these trade scenarios I just shake my head.

Stanton has hit 100 homers in his career…and is younger than Marte. He has 10 homers because he missed 2 months of the season. And if we’re hung up on average here, he’s hitting the same as Alvarez. Stanton is also locked up for 3 more years as well, so he’s not a rent-a-bum.
I like Tulo a lot, but he gets hurt a ton as well. And is dinged up now. If you go after one of those guys, its Stanton all the way.

I just don’t think the rest of the prospecting world may agree with folks here.

I still like him, but I think a lot of the prospecting world might think other teams pitching prospects might have higher ceilings or a better ability to reach those ceilings.

I firmly believe that most baseball fans have no grasp of how good Polanco has been and what kind of potential he has. Trading him would be ridiculous.
I don’t care if it’s to get Giancarlo Stanton. I’d give up just about anybody else in the sytem but definitely not Polanco.

The Pirates haven’t seen a guy come through their system like him since Dave Parker in the mid 70′s.

Now if tulo was involved I would include one of them. SS like him are not easy to find. If aoki was avail to us he would be ideal in my world and keep tabata or Snyder as bench guys.

Sale could take Burnett’s place in the rotation in 2014 and is signed to a great contract through 2019! However, Sale is probably more untouchable than Polanco.

The White Sox, for one, aren’t going to be getting as much for Rios as some people think IMO. In a world where the Twins can go out and get Josh Willingham for $7M per, no one is going to view Rios at $12.5M as some sort of bargain. I think that’s a case where they’ll be forced to choose between eating some salary or acquiring mediocre prospects in return.
