Absolutely not, but would he have helped over the past two years is the whole question, well over the past two years and next 4 or however much more control he had.For this trade, it absolutely is. The Cubs went out and got a really good closer that was a reason why they won the World Series. Torres doesn't help them win it in 2016..
Theo had a great one and let him slip away.
This is really no different than the Soler deal, other than Soler is a DH, it is different if the guy he got dealt for is still here helping.
