Matusz? Makes sense.
Yeah. I have always liked Matusz a bit and there were rumors of them being interested in Smoak.
I'm totally guessing though.
Yeah, it would be a bust for bust (at least so far).
this lineup dialogue is like.... u want chicken pot pie for dinner or hamburger helper?
^ And what would you call 2012's? It sure as hell isn't a nice New York steak.
i was way more encouraged going into last season than i am this yr. we had to put hope in young guys but now we have glaring deficiency to try and ignore.
i am actually starting to think its possible montero could be dealt... i hope not tho.
it follows the trend of head-scratching moves....and im hardly convinced montero is a C (obviously we are still going to sign a C or 2)
it seems like smoak or montero have to be moved, montero actually has trade value.
But this should tell you they think of Montero as a catcher. They aren't going to trade both catchers and go with some leftover FA. Makes no sense, no matter what you think of Jack.
Just a weird conclusion for you to come to.
Anyway, if I had to bet, then no, I won't bet on a full reproduction of 2011, but I would bet on closer to 2011 than 2012. I'll say a .340+ wOBA and a 130+ wRC+, and 140+ games played/started. Jaso may have better numbers in those two categories (wOBA and wRC+), but I'll bet Morse has more in the overrated counting stats, simply because he'll get to play more often, even though Jaso will be properly used in Oakland. Here's a question... in fantasy baseball, who do you draft first, given the teams they're now on, Jaso or Morse? And act like a fantasy baseball championship rides on the decision.
