Yet, as Dombrowski pointed out, that kind of return simply was not available this offseason.
The payroll reason makes more sense, although they might have gotten a better return holding onto Fister for a few months until some other team got desperate. Of course, holding onto Fister carries risk too.
“You can see that young pitching right now is very difficult to acquire,” Dombrowski said. “We had a list of about 15 pitchers that we would consider in various deals. He was one of the 15. The other 14 people said no. And (the Nationals) said no at first.”
"They thought it through" is the weakest defense ever!
And 15 young pitchers you'd take for Fister?
At Iowa, of course, the CIA wanted it that way :)
