If this is true and All Machado brings back is one preseason B/B- prospect (45 FV) one will hope the Twin's scouts are better than the online talent evaluators

Fangraphs guy says they got a starting outfielder, back end starter, a relief pitcher, and two utility players. For 2.5 months of a player. I'd take that.

There's always next year, or the next, or maybe by the time I'm Chief's age, I guess....

That's like getting five extra draft picks except you know that these players have had some level of success in Pro ball.Pretty good get for a rental.I did think that Baltimore would have gone with just two players and get like Diaz and May their number 10 prospect.That would have given them a potential star outfielder and a potential number 3 starter.I guess the more lotto tickets the better as you never know who is going to turn out.Still very good deal for a rental.

If you could guarantee they'd all pan out, yes, that'd absolutely be worth it. Though with 5 prospects your chances of getting good player(s) is higher just because you've acquired so many.

I'd say all of them are pretty decent sleeper/upside type guys. Everyone has performed. Yes, only one is a highly thought of prospect at this point, but each of those guys could end up being quality major leaguers.
