Ignore the Trades
McMahon’s value as a dynasty prospect is obviously up, right? He gets to play third base, and he has a clearer path to playing time. Glasnow’s value? Obviously down. He has to pitch in Coors. Rough.
Except wait a minute: The logic we just used to say McMahon’s value is up should mean that Glasnow’s value is up too, no? He’s going right into the rotation. And if Pittsburgh is such a worse place to hit than Colorado, maybe McMahon’s value is actually down.
