Sign a catcher is an obvious. Is there another trade in the works to clear out our jam of corner players? We'll see.
Maybe Montero becomes a full time C

I'm really at a loss why everyone is concerned about the Carp, Smoak, Bay, Ibanez and anyone else losing PT to Morse.
If it was me then I would have just taken the Nats out of the deal and took the A's prospects even if they are pitchers. Everybody needs pitching and at some point you can trade them for someone that won't be a FA in a year.
Ender wrote:I think people are just overrating Morse. He is a poor defensive OF and a poor baserunner which eats at his value, he is 31 years old and on the last year of his contract. He has been a league average or better player exactly 1 year. Jaso for Morse is probably a pretty even trade but given where the Mariners are as a team a trade of Jaso for the prospects the A's gave up would have been a much better deal. I don't expect the Mariners to compete this year and I don't expect Morse to put up a full win more value than what they already had.
