A hilarious look back at the Jacobs trade.

9

this thread on Fangraphs from October 31. Great stuff from all sides. Dave Cameron of Fangraphs fights the good fight, but ultimately surrenders to such logic as: jacobs also catches. he adds corner infield, bench and dh depth at the least, for an offensivly challenged club, at the price of a reliever. ownership could just as easily pocketed jacobs salary from their revenue sharing funds received. they reinvested in the club, regardless of outcomes, i appreciate their effort. Classic. Most supporters of the trade make arguments similar to the arguments we heard in favor of the Yuni trade: Jacobs > Gload, so it's a good move (Yuni > TPJ, so it's a good move). The old vacuum problem raises its ugly head again.
