Why mention Margot and not mention Moncada?Yea of all of the guys traded, the only really regrettable loss is Shaw. Margot is basically JBJ but less power and faster, which is definitely a valuable player for the Padres in that stadium. He still has the most potential and is still young. I just pulled Lorenzo Cain's stats to compare his career trajectory, and man what a strange career that guy has had. Medicore first few years then legitimate star.
All of our big prospects were cashed in for players that made a big difference on the team, and we still have Benintendi and Devers. Really great job by Dombrowski building this team, hopefully we can get lucky on some of the guys we have in the minors and keep this window open through the early twenties.
I just read the other guys write up and that's pretty harsh. Moncada has had just as much success as Margot and far more potential.
