    It was inevitable but still a sad day for Diamondback fans.

    if you're feeling sad about this trade, wait a few days to look at the stats of the players the dbacks got back.

    One of these days this city will be blessed with a competent sports franchise.

    Sad to see Goldy go. Know nothing about the guys in return but none look impressive at first blush. Anyone with knowledge on them?

    Giving away potentially the franchise’s first homegrown HoF member for a trash return. Great job Kendrick/Hazen, good luck putting those negotiations skills to work in strongarming the city for more stadium cash.

    They're competent enough... ownership just didn't want to dig deep and expand the payroll. Which, given what it would've taken to put this team in position to be a serious championship contender, I can't say I their decision doesn't make sense.
    Ownership and the Front Office are committed to a rebuild, which is never fun for fans. But, it should be interesting to see Hazen in full action now.

    Kelly is garbage. Like worse than Alex Avila garbage. Weaver is another Zack Godley at best. Young is barely a Top 30 prospect in the Cardinals system. This is a horrendous trade.

    At least the Diamondbacks have won a championship.

    Weaver once looked like a frontline starter but bombed last year. He has potential. He might be a good get for you guys.

    The Dbacks had a chance to keep a generational TEAM player. One that inspires kids to follow the team. One that builds legions of fans for decades. But no, Hazen and Kendrick blow it.
