Here is Victor Alcantanas stats in the minors. Very underwhelming, hating this trade big time.

Welcome to the Chris Ilitch era.

Who is going to play CF? Collins, Jones, Gose??

I'm so glad we have Gose instead of Rajai! Good decision!

I loved Maybin this year! I figured they wouldn't pick up his option anyway so this saved us a million(I think that was his buyout) and gets us back a body that's surely better than someone in our system.

Maybin exercising his 9m option. That's why the trade was made. Just like he said, everyone is available.

IMO getting anything for him was a good move. His salary is essentially 18m because he's only gonna play 80-90 games. Love the dude but he is a walking injury.

I hate to see Maybin go. The team played so much better with him in the lineup. He was hurt a lot. Just hate the idea of a lot more Gose in CF.

Don't like this at all, maybin was a spark and a fan favorite, and they didn't get jack crap in return, absolutely terrible

Booo. And for the love of gawd I don't want to ever seen goose back in center either! He freaking blows
