San Francisco Giants: Matt Moore Trade Still Polarizing Years Later

Moments before the trade deadline in 2016, the San Francisco Giants struck a deal to acquire Tampa Bay Rays left-handed hurler Matt Moore.

There are few moves in recent Giants history that are more polarizing than the decision to trade for Moore. It was not that Moore was unpopular at the outset of his Giants tenure, but rather what it cost the team.

To swing the deal, the Giants traded away third baseman Matt Duffy as well as infield prospect Lucius Fox and pitching prospect Michael Santos.

The decision to move Duffy was not a popular move by any means.
