No, not "The Red Sox / Yankees proposals" v. "The Mets deal" ....
In December, 'everyone' thought the Red Sox / Yankees offers weren't nearly good enough for Johan, that the Twins would get better deals if they held out & that Johan would waive the no-trade clause ('no problem').
Now, of course, Smith should've taken one of those deals ....
Has anyone evaluated what Smith actually had to choose between, to wit:
"One year of Johan + two draft picks"
"The four players we got from the Mets."
