    Hopefully things even out a bit more in year 2, he settles in, and the value gets even greater, but this deal is still crazy good to me - even if it wasn't as amazing as I envisioned heading into 2018.
    IMO, Stanton isn't a defensive wizard. Offensively, he possesses a "going yard" mindset and he isn't a get on base any way you can and move the runners up a base or two hitter.

    As he ages, he will be a full time DH and untradeable to an NL team.

    You are assuming that the DH is not implemented - IMO, it likely will be in the next CBA as the owners give the PA something in return for other provisions.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view
