On Saturday, the Miami Marlins finally did what everyone was expecting them to do and traded perpetually on-the-cusp starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco. The Dodgers took Nolasco (and the rest of his salary) off Miami's hands, sending them minor league pitchers Steven Ames, Josh Wall and Angel Sanchez in return (as well as international signing bonus slot 96, valued at $197,000).
Literally every single person who made predictions for the trade pool had Nolasco as their top pick. Everyone is tied for first place. Nice work, all.
