I hate the term ‘untouchable’.  It rubs me the wrong way, just like ‘it’s a must-win game’.

As far as I’m concerned, everyone has a price.  Now you might be saying to yourself, ‘What about Clayton Kershaw, Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, etc.?  Aren’t they ‘untouchable’?’

I will grant you that it’s a fair question to ask.  But need I remind you that there were rumors last year about the Angels possibly trading Mike Trout for a boat-load of prospects?

I’m not saying that there aren’t exceptionally great players that shouldn’t be traded.  What I’m saying is that every single player, in every sport, has a price.

That’s the case for Baez as well.  Does this mean that I expect Baez to be dealt anytime soon?  No.
