I agree. One of the things that separates the best GMs from the mediocre ones is the confidence to trust their talent evaluators and pull the trigger on deals, even risky ones.
A GM should have no untouchables. Like with Donaldson, a GM might not want to deal a player but once the return gets high enough you have to pull the trigger. If his scouts and his number crunchers like the players, he makes the deal. After making the deal it’s up to the player development people and the major league coaches to get the most out of the acquired players. Granted the A’s are losing five years of Donaldson but they are potentially getting a lot years from the new guys. With the A’s track record, I’d say the chances the Beane will come out looking good on this deal ten years from now are pretty good.
