Imagine the Cubs make a trade in the next two weeks. (They can’t during the lockout. Hence why it’s an imagination game.) Perhaps it’s a blockbuster, or an afterthought required by a 40 man roster addition. Whether you do any research or not, you come out with your assessment within a few hours. It’s either “love it,” “hate it,” or “I’m a bit unsure, as a few of the players are unfamiliar to me. However, you’re on the record. In my universe, it’s entirely acceptable for someone else to reference that assessment as often as they want. “Aren’t you the person that opposed the Jake Arrieta/Pedro Strop trade?”, or whatever. Do the research, and state your opinion, but it’s yours forever. This is my prospect profile of Anderson Espinoza.
