I don't think bad half-seasons diminish the value of proven players all that much. It's why they still got a lot for Quintana, he's had an ERA between 3.20 and 3.51 and pitched over 200 innings the past four seasons. And his BB-rate, while high for him, is still only 3.5 this season.

It's also why Manny's value will remain sky high if we decide to move him. And why I think, as long as he shows he's healthy, we can get a ton for Britton as well.

The return on Britton will still be nice should we move hum but he's no longer in Andrew Miller value territory

I think Miller's extra year of control for much lower AAV is the main reason why he got more in return than I think Britton will.  I think teams will knock just a touch off of Britton due to his injuries this year, but that's a much smaller factor than the contract status.  Britton will have about 1 1/3 years left due a total of around $19M.  Miller had 2 1/3 years left due a total of around $21M.  Miller makes $9M a year, Britton will get $14-16M next year.

It wouldn't surprise me if his value isn't as high as Chapman's last year despite having an extra year of team control. I haven't looked closely enough at the return the Yanks got on Chapman to say that confidently though

Branden, I think you are going a little overboard on how much Britton's value has dropped and if has dropped, they aren't going to trade him.

I don't think they're trading him no matter what. I think he'd get a nice return but last year I remember people being surprised at just how good NY made out on the deals for their elite RPs. I'd be surprised if we got similar value. Again, I say that not remembering exactly what NY got in those deals.

Did they have Moises Alou hand it to him?

Yeah, and they gave Alou a stepladder and butterfly net so he could reach Bartman.

I assume Maddon just wants to reunite with Jim Hickey.
