Because it is.. Tatar has 8 points in 9 games and has been a big part of their early season success so far. Patches has 2 points in 9 games. If it ended there it would be whatever but they also got a top prospect in Suzuki and a top 60 draft pick in that deal. Nevermind the contract they gave him after the deal (7M AAV). This is looking to be one of the worst deals in recent memory and could get even worse depending on the development of the other pieces. Shades of the Gomez deal.
