Well, when you use the word unproven for Eaton, and then mention how Santiago was a good young pitcher, kinda hard not to assume you considered Santiago a proven commodity, which he isn't...same as Eaton. So again, how many players do you think a pitcher with 224 innings and one full season in the majors would command in a trade?
