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