    Even if the DBax pull Mantiply from the deal, the Guardians would still say yes..

    • Tim Estadt

      Oh coarse they would still say yes. The deal is terrible for AZ.

      • Ty Archy

        On paper, it’s not bad for them long term at all… Rocchio is a good prospect, top 100 for a reason…

        • Tim Estadt

          DBacks are not rebuilding. Won over 80 games. 3 major league players for a prospect at a position of no need isn’t a good fit. They already have little veteran pitching so I doubt they trade away any this winter. Mantiply is the only player they wouldn’t have to go out and immediately replace.

          • Ty Archy

            Are you sure the Dbacks don’t need to go a little younger?

            They got 74 wins in 22 (74-88 was their record) so where did the over 80 come from? Also they are in the toughest division in baseball, they need to retool some and Rocchio would easily be a top 5 prospect in their organization. They have a ton of prospects making their MLB debuts in 23, Rocchio has the same timeline…

            I actually don’t think Cleveland does this because he’s too good of a prospect to give up for guys who would be considered ancient on Cleveland’s team.

            DBacks aren’t set to contend in 23, but 24… Moving Walker and both Kelly’s aren’t going to hurt them and they have enough arms to replace Mantiply in 24. I don’t think all four guys are in the roster starting day…

          • Big Bat

            It’s hard to say what Arizona is going to do, but they aren’t going to compete for that division title. I think a couple more prospects or Rosario could be added to this deal going to Arizona. Something like Pilkington/Curry/Gaddis, Rocchio(who I don’t think will be dealt) and one of Palacios/Halpin.
