    The White Sox could accompany this trade with a press release conceding that they traded a younger, better, cheaper Adam Frazier to get Kimbrel in the first place!

    Why would the Padres do this? Frazier, at estimated 7.2M is a much safer bet than Kimbrel at 16M.

      Yeah, I don’t see the Padres dropping $16M on a closer given their apparent urgency to get rid of bad money to tinker with their roster some more.

    I don’t trust all those likes for this trade. Somebody is artificially pumping up this trade. A higher than 90% like percentage on both sides is fishy. Can the Padres afford Kimbrel? It would put them over the Luxury tax by at least 5 million. They would have shed a ton of payroll without their farm system. Darvish, Myers, Hosmer, and Machado contracts aren’t going disappear. They would have spend like the Dodgers to justify a Kimbrel contract.

      Crikey, are you kidding? You think this site gets enough mainstream traffic for that? Garbage take.
