KW's modus operandi would have been to try to get those players using Johnson, Semien, etc. I like the change in philosophy.
I disagree. Had KW traded Santiago for Eaton, people on this board would've said he'd gotten fleeced, or even the trade of Reed for Davidson. Members here I think would've said he didn't get enough for either player. But Hahn does it and is lauded for it. I loved both moved btw. And neither trade gets made without KW's approval/support.
