      It’s not inaccurate, unless you went solely by the field value numbers (the AFV column above, which shows that the Blue Jays are giving up around $400M in field value and getting only about $85M back — that’s probably why it looks imbalanced to you).

      But trades are based on surplus value — the amount of value over and above the contract — and there’s not much of that in Springer, Berrios and Gausman because they’re getting paid market value. That means this trade would require the Astros to take on almost $400M in salary commitments, which is something they would never do.
