It was a dark Wednesday for Arizona Diamondbacks fans, as the organization traded first baseman Paul Goldschmidt — inarguably the best player the team ever drafted.

But we’re told that the economic realities of Major League Baseball — and Goldschmidt being one year away from a very expensive contract via free agency — made this the wisest decision.
