Not to mention, its like they played most of their year with a Double A starting pitching rotation. Their bullpen was brutal (with the exception of Janssen who was outstanding once he took over the closer role) and if not for Encarnacion, this team would have been a bigger joke then they were.
This deal is massive. They gave up a lot in future pieces, but thats exactly what they needed to do if they want to make a serious run at a playoff spot this year.
