On Jumbo, good riddance. On the Hamilton comments, I agree. On Disco injury, ARGH!

On the "I would have traded DeSclafani after last year" discussion... While I generally agree with the logic of "buy low, sell high", that only makes sense if you think the player will not be as good going forward as he is now. If you think he will perform at the same level, or maybe improve, and he is young, then you keep him. I saw nothing from Disco that made me think last year was a fluke. He has been improving slowly and steadily since he came to Cincy. A keeper in my book. Of course, the injury makes it all different.

If a team overuses the buy low, sell high approach and trades every young player after a good season, you never reap the benefits of player development.
