Good move for the A's.
I don't think it's a stretch to say that at least two of those will bounce back and have much better years. Don't forget the new shorter fence in Seattle. Hopefully the team actually looks forward to playing at home now.
Does Smoak bceome expendable now? I'm assuming they want Michael Morse at 1B and Montero at DH. Probably not in the M's best interest to put that guy in the OF.
You have no idea how excited I am right now.
Love it for the M's
wow this is a major win for the A's
get a good catcher, a position which they struggled with mightily last year for AJ Cole
props to vick27m

Too much to give from the A's. Yes, I know the A's are good in developing SP (Straily & Griffin) but if you could have 5 SP that became Aces man that could be something.
dont get why the mariners made this deal
