I'm OK with this trade- between Thornton's age, contract and his performance this year- anything of value is acceptable to me.
Our overall outfield talent in the minors is a disaster- so sounds like we've improved the situation by addinng this guy. To be 22 and spend most of the season in A ball isn't a good sign- but since our minor league system is in such poor shape- this is still an improvement.
