Prior to the Gleybar Torres deal, the addison russell for Jeff Samardjiza deal was always used as this standard that people felt they could get. It was super influential in a number of ways:

- Sending out players with more control 

- Jumping the line for deadline deals to increase return

- Packaging players to get a better singular prospect

At the time Russell was a top 10 prospect.

Then the sox traded for Samardjiza. JS was fine but the As again got knocked out in wildcard game. And they shipped him off in the offseason for a package of decent but unheralded prospects from the sox.

We all know this. We have harped on "oh sox suck, they let go a great SS" etc. 

But I just actually sat back and thought about how Billy Beane is still running a damn good ship out in oakland.

In reality he turned what would have been 7 WAR of cheap production from Russell/McKinney (among other things) into:

- 2.2 WAR from Samardjiza

- 14 WAR from Marcus Semien

- 1 WAR from Phegley

- 4 WAR from Bassit

Returned - 21.2 WAR

Gave Up: 7 WAR

14 WAR return

And yet more talk about the cubs side of that trade than the As. That was a friggen great series for Beane.
