Josh Hamilton / Edinson Volquez

We're 16% of the way into the season, about 1 month. All you can say right now is: Wow.

What a trade on both sides so far.

Could this have turned out any better for Cincy + Texas?

Volquez is now 4-0 w/ an ERA around 1.00, and hasn't surrendered a HR yet.

Obviously, we know the story with Hamilton.

So here's the question: If the success on both sides hold up for the entire season, do you still like the trade as much as you may have before the season started?

I do. With a bevy of rotation talent on the way, Volquez was expendable. CF has always been a huge hole here, and Hamilton takes away from a good deal of the offensive void left by the departure of Mark Teixeira.

Another question, if for some reason Julio Borbon pans out and makes it to Arlington quicker than expected (which is a longshot), what do we do? Do we shift Hamilton to LF/RF? Would Borbon be an upgrade defensively in CF?

Just some random questions I had earlier. Thoughts?
