    AA was the GM since 2009 if they're prospect depth sucked before the trades, it was because of him. If their prospect depth sucked because of the trades, it was because of the trades.

    AA made moves that most fans feel was worth it, and that's totally fine, but it's revisionist history to say he had awesome results, a sterling reputation, or really a clear and concise direction for the team during his tenure. He got desperate, swung for the fences, and hit some memories. But he got desperate because he was doing a bad job and his job was on the line.

    I was pointing out to people who say AA destroyed their depth by the trade, it wasn't there before the trade. To "justify" what he did would be saying the prospect depth and talent level wouldn't have propelled the current team to playoff status, so might as well use that to go for it that yr.

    Like in poker when you wouldn't have enough for the blinds, so you might as well go all in on your current hand that could win a round.

    Oh well, I think they're prospect depth is actually really good. They traded Osuna and it is that. Oh welllllll
