I wish I was wrong too. If there was ANY chance for them to land Escobar, or both, I'd love to see it. MIL made a huge mistake when they traded him for Greinke. Future franchise SS traded for a year and half of pitching
Yeah, defense up the middle (C, SS, CF, 2B) in that order and in a ballpark like CoPa corner OF defense is at a premium...

but back to the SS, yes, most valuable piece on a team outside of pitching and catching, IMO. That is why Theo Epstein will never let go of Castro...and shouldn't.
