    Young2Kinsler you were totally forgetting about Zunino.

    I think each team made out well in this trade though Cole is pretty projectable.

    He hit a wall in the Cal League. What happened?
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    good trade. Cole was brutal in High A, and wasnt going to be a factor for 3-4 years in Oakland anyways. Jaso gives us a little something something RIGHT NOWJ

    Not really Morse gives us a power bat and Zunino could be ready some time this year.

    To the person I was talking to:

    Morse didnt play full time. He played 103 games and was injured. Its not fair to completely judge him on one injury laden season.

    Also, expect regression from Jaso. He is a platoon catcher and will always hit righties well, but not as well as he did last year most likely.

    I am not a huge fan of the deal, but you overreacted big time.

    Jaso Career: .255/.359/.395, .337 wOBA, 116 wRC+, 5.4 WAR in 311 games, 297 of them against RHP.

    Morse career: .295/.347/.492, .363 wOBA, 127 wRC+, 6.1 WAR in 485 games.
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.

    Nice post. So much for the Ms making a poor move. Should post that in the Ms forum too.

    The issue is less that they swapped Jaso specifically for Morse, more that they swapped 3 years of a pretty valuable catcher for one year of a 1B/DH type (who I guess can try to masquerade as a LFer again) and in the process made one of the three teams ahead of them in that division even better.

    That is true, but you have to realize Jaso only played against righties last year. Now we have Zunino (one of the top young catchers in the league) who will likely be in the bigs by 2014. Montero is taking over the starting role behind the plate. And yes, Jaso could DH, but he would likely be behind Smoak and Morales for at-bats.

    Jaso is a great situational player, but he isn't someone who can start every game. While Morse's D isn't the best, he can flat out hit lefties and righties.
