"Not if we had to trade for it, [and] we'd have to trade for it. We want to be competitive and we want to win baseball games, but we're not going to take a step backwards by trading guys that are going to be helpful to us going forward."

- Dave Stewart

"I'm smart enough to know that something could have happened. Obviously I wasn't pitching the way I need to be to stay in the place that I want to be. Hopefully it's a chance to get some innings and get some things ironed out and get my command back, and that's really been the biggest component of my lack of success."

Goldschmidt is a player from the 1950s and '60s sent back in time to take over the modern game. He plays first base with a glove like Gil Hodges, he's at the plate swatting homers like Harmon Killebrew and he's as humble as Sandy Koufax. We aren't just seeing one of 2015's best players, we're seeing an all-time great just starting to make his mark on baseball.
