Hard to know what’s tangible and what is just smoke from a guy with a twitter account regarding rumors about our young lefty.
But the rumors persist and it makes you wonder if there must be some truth that Alderson is looking to deal Niese.
Latest is Seth Smith the Rockie OF which I simply don’t get. Smith is a nice player with 15 to (maybe) 20 HR potential when playing half his games at Coors. Maybe he’s just the first piece in a larger lucrative package but I don’t understand the desire to deal Niese.
Alderson must not believe in the kid or knows something we don’t - why else would you trade a solid young SP for another OF… Weird … Very weird
