Reviewing the Luhnow Era trades

MLB Trade Rumors just compiled a list of trades made by Jeff Luhnow. I’ve written extensively on this subject here in the last two years.

It seems to me a lot of homers in the comment section are lauding Luhnow’s trade record. I don’t agree.

What follows is a very short summary. Overall, Luhnow made many trades that cost the Astros system major league players without getting anything, or very little, in return. He also made a few spectacularly good trades.

Seems Luhnow swung for the fences. He struck out a bunch, but he hit a couple out of the park.
