I had/have accepted that. Then a hypothetical was posed that made the matter more confusing. Subsequent explanations to me and Brooks have only furthered confusion. That hypothetical, and the dubious logic behind it, are to blame.
I don't find the hypothetical all that problematic--I think Nick was off-the-cuffing it, and you shouldn't hold him to one poor hypothetical. But the point of his hypothetical is that Cron has more value to the Twins than he does to nearly every other club to the point where he wouldn't trade him for another organization's Gordon. I.e. Cron's current value to the Twins eclipses Gordon's trade value.
But I'll let it be as well.
