If he keeps this up he'll be a more hated man than Matt Millen.

Who's this Millen guy you speak of? Haha

This hands down has to be one of the dumbest moves I've seen in a while.The Yanks offered the M's Pavano($22M) for Sexson($28M) and Bavasi passed.With the money he would have saved by dealing Sexson,he could've put it towards signing Marcus Giles and saved the $24M-$27M he gave Batista.I would rather have Pavano,M.Giles and some combination of Broussard/? at 1st than Sexson/Vidro/Batista. Just terrible.

You really don't want Pavano. Either way you listed a whole lot of mediocre to bad baseball players. The best one Giles, naturally will not be a Mariner next year. I really think the M's should hire me as G.M. or heck just about anyone in this cafe for that matter.

Maybe the plan is Lopez to SS and Vidro to 2B which would send Betancourt to the bench. I don't know if Lopez can play SS, but this way they should get more offense. Still a bone head trade, but maybe this is the plan.

Lopez had an OPS of .723. Betancourt had an OPS of .713. And the differences in Runs/RBIs can essentially be explained by their spots in the batting order. Plus Betancourt has an above average glove at SS and I would not want to see Lopez playing short on an everyday basis.

Vidro was acquired to apparently be the DH. Why you'd want a 2B with a .700ish OPS as your DH is beyond me. :-P :-P
