Pre-Emptive Trade Reactions
I’m driving to upstate New York for a wedding this weekend, so I probably won’t get a chance to respond to any kind of trades that the M’s might make over the next few days. So, here are my reactions ahead of time, and hopefully they’ll be useful if something gets announced shortly.
Trade Yuni? Yay.
Trade Wlad? No problem.
Trade Clement? Understandable.
Trade Halman? Sure.
None of those guys have a future in Seattle. As long as the M’s are getting a decent return, I’m okay with them all leaving. As for who they might get back.
Jack Wilson? Yuni’s bat + Cedeno’s glove = solid player, but not a long term solution.
Freddy Sanchez? Ichiro-lite, infield version. Value is tied to his BABIP, which makes him a risk.
Ian Snell? If you’re trading with Pittsburgh, get him in the deal please. See here.
