Or... They could have just worked him into a deal they've apparently been working on since the winter meetings.
I imagine the cost would have been less than Morrow.
Well sure, but Chavez isn't the principal piece of the deal... The M's got a pretty big bullpen upgrade out of the deal as well.
Morrow is all potential, and apparently the M's don't think there's that much there. Jack has been a pretty shrewd taent evaluator both with the Brewers and in Seattle so I'll defer to his judgement. 'm not stoked about the return ater he's been linked to guys like Gamel and Brignac, but those may have simply been rumors. In any case, I can totally nderstand why both teams did the deal.
