2014 Trade Reaction Roundup

Well, that’s about the most active trade deadline I can remember, though it might not feel that way if you live in Philadelphia, Colorado, or Toronto. Still, some big deals happened, some small deals happened, and a bunch of players are changing uniforms. We’ve written about most of the deals, with multiple angles on all the big ones. To make them easy to find, here’s one big post to find all our reactions in one spot. As we add more write-ups, we’ll add them here as well.

Thanks for hanging out and breaking all kinds of FanGraphs traffic records, everyone.

Is that sarcasm I detect? Emilio Bonafacio is a nice little player who can do a lot of things for you. He’s a nice little player. He’s a guy that is a real team guy. He’ll play all over the diamond. If you need him to bunt a guy over he’ll do that. He’ll steal a base for you. Do a little hit and run. Nice slap hitter. He and Josh Harrison are some of the more valuable players.

Not fair to Harrison to mention him with Bonifacio, Harrison acutally has decent power and much better wOBA.

Harrison .295/.333/.473 .350 wOBA
Bonifacio .279/.318/.373 .305 wOBA

I guess your little, sarcasm detector, ain’t working because, I don’t care who you are, okay?, if you don’t have chemistry, then all of the talent in the world ain’t gonna help you.
