Nobody else had reservations on Graterol

By: TroyStory

Sox knew they had the Dodgers hooked, with the Padres as backup. They pulled the move due to backlash, I believe. Getting Downs, while still getting rid of Price, made it a better deal for them. We got Betts and kept the top prospects, so I still like our side of the equation. And we still have Joc. The Angel part of the deal made little sense. I wonder if Joc losing arbitration($11m vs $7.75m) was the difference. That decision happened after the first trade announcement. I think the Dodgers were expecting him to win his case(60 HR's last two years).
