Belated: Tom Meagher Defends The Piazza Trade
Tom Meagher thinks the Mike Piazza-for-Gary Sheffield trade was actually pretty good:
All in all, I don't think the Dodgers made that bad of a deal. However, judged in context, it should be considered a lot worse because of opportunity cost. Dealing with the Marlins in the midst of a fire-sale should have yielded a much better return. Had they made a similar deal with another team, it would look better; as it happened, they ostensibly could have acquired a lot more value.
