Would be interesting to see what happened if they asked for Bubba Starling in the package. I'd take Ventura off the table at that point and offer a much less valuable secondary piece at that point. Considering all the risk tied up in Bubba, I'm not sure using him as a trade chip is a bad idea.
Hard to say if that's a decent value return for him, though. He has the tools to hit like Matt Kemp with elite, GG-level defense from the CF spot.
I still think we're likely to trade a bullpen piece (Holland, Herrera, Collins, Crow) in these deals. And I'm OK with that. Deal from strength.
