How about mix and match the 2? Unorthodox but could be lethal.
Even more than trading a guy they like away (players understand this part of the business), when they see a guy (Melancon) who’s been the top guy in his role in all of baseball, who took less money to come here, worked his ass off, grabbed the closer job and excelled, be rewarded by having another guy come in and take your job, that would affect chemistry more than trading away the albatross. Lethal combo? Absolutely. But at what cost?oh and i said it before, trades affect chemistry. tros trade can do that, but truly the guy has not been earning his pay at the plate. Wont get much value for him in a trade if anyone even wants him. We may be stuck for better or worse. Hopefully he goes on another tear during second half.
