    As acquire Jaso in 3 team deal

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/0...h-nats-as.html

    I am not sure what to think about this. I like Jaso, but now we have 3 catchers, and I thought Cole was worth more.

    Jaso is insane. Love this trade. Cole was a good spect but expendable. Kontras is gone in my opinion

    A little insight into how great this trade is.

    I know he is really good obp and had a crazy wRC+, but e is also a platooner. As of now we don't have the other half for that. In addition I am curious/worried about the player to be named later.

    Jaso gives us value NOW, while Cole wouldnt be giving us anything for 3-4 years, unless he became AJ Griffin 2.0

    If Jaso can come close to repeating last season, he's like a better version of Kottaras without the strikeouts. He smoked the ball last season.

    Kottaras had a big hole in his swing. Still thankful for his production though. Best of luck to him wherever he lands

    I like Oakland acquiring this Jaso guy.

    Hope he stays out of Sac, and produces in Oakland.

    Same here...

    But after reading all the articles, comments, etc.. I'm okay with the trade. Now we nearly have platoons at every position. I still feel though that we could/should have gotten more than a platoon catcher for our supposedly #1 pitching prospect.

    ahhh... the good ole days
