ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. MICHAEL MORSE TO SEATTLE
Michael Morse to slip through the Yankees fingers. Brian Cashman is either sleeping right now and has no idea this trade just happened and will read it tomorrow on BYB or he's about to get bitch slapped by Yankeeland, or, both. No excuse, this was a smart player to pick up and we didn't do the job...again!
Morse was involved in a 3 team deal, he went to Seattle. AJ Cole went to the Nationals from the Oakland Athletics and Mariners catcher John Jaso went to the A's. Read HERE.
Now, I ask you... was a 3 team trade really needed to net Michael Morse? No. There was definitely a combination of players the Yankees could have sent to Washington to snag Morse. He would have been a good addition for the Yankees. A right handed bat with power, something Cashman said we needed, remember? Morse is a part time outfielder, a first baseman and he could even fill in as a part time Designated Hitter. He was right there in our grasp... plain and simple, but NO. The Yankees either have something up their sleeve or all their talk about "not being done yet" is just a bunch of crap. Don't blow smoke Hal, do something.
I said it earlier today in WE NEED TO HOLD YANKEE BRASS TO THEIR WORD, and we do. Now Morse is gone. Now we need to get that right handed bat... Guess what? Giancarlo Stanton and Justin Upton appear to be the only other 2 options left and I don't have much faith.
So... what's it gonna be Cash? What's it gonna be?
