Theo Epstein Is A Wizard; Mark Shapiro, Not So Much

theo-epstein

How about, instead of giving you the players you want, I'll give you players you don't want? DEAL!

MLB.com’s Jonathon Mayo is reporting that the Sox landed Victor Martinez in exchange for Nick Hagadone and Justin Masterson.

The fact that the Tribe didn’t get Clay Bucholz in this deal is crippling for Indians fans.

Couple that with the fact that the Indians didn’t get any of the Phillies top prospects for Cliff Lee, and it really wasn’t a good week for Mark Shapiro of the Indians.  I mean it wasn’t atrocious, but when you trade the reigning Cy Young winner and a 30 year old 1B/C under contract for $7 Mil next year, you expect to get a BOUNTY in return.  Who knows how these things pan out, but it doesn’t look as if Cleveland got that.

FS Theo Epstein.  Again.
