"This was as pure a baseball trade, shorn of financial considerations, as you’ll find in today’s game. What makes it even more interesting is how even it is; both teams traded from strength, both teams balanced their rosters, both teams can consider themselves better for having made the deal. I’d rather have the Diamondbacks’ side because Moreno may well be an All-Star and Varsho has those warts, but this sure looks like a win-win trade to me."
