I don’t really have words for this right now. Needless to say, the first instinct is that this is a very bad trade driven by the manager’s and player’s personalities. In much the same way that the Brendan Ryan trade was ill-advised, this one seems so as well. The package that the Cardinals got back will hinge on Marc Rzepczynski and whether he can be a starter long term.
Please watch your language in the comments and avoid personal attacks. I don’t want to have to play the heavy right now.
