aclayman wrote:Not 100% what his current contract situation is, but with Pujols now in Anaheim and Trumbo in the way, as well, the forgotten first baseman over there is Morales. Risky move coming off missing a year and a half? Of course. But this seems like the kind of potentially low budget risk the Tribe might benefit greatly from, considering Morales was turning into a top tier slugger before jumping on home plate and snapping his leg like a twig.

How are all these teams throwing money around and our piece of shit owner is still sitting on his wallet. Spend some fucking money already Dolan or sell the team. Why does he not understand that this city is dying for a winning team. The fans showed it in the 90's they will sell out the place.

Especially after the Rangers land either Yu Darvish or Prince Fielder, who would be scary in that park.Got Mike Trout on the come ... him or Bourjos, Kendrick, Aybar at the top of that lineup with Pujols, Truombo, Vernon Wells, Torri Hunter hitting 3-6. Weaver, Haren, CJ Wilson, Ervin Santana.

aclayman wrote:Not sure why Paulie C. dismisses Morales so swiftly while opening his arms to (left handed) Dan Murphy and his ACL injury. It's one thing if the Angels just aren't dealing him, which looks quite possible. But comparing Morales' situation to Nick Johnson's seems a bit of a stretch. Johnson hadn't been of any use to anybody since 2006. Morales has yet to show what he can do post-surgery, and the word is he is supposed to be ready for spring training. Obviously, adding another recovery case to Sizemore/Hafner is far from ideal, but isn't the whole Jimenez-window strategy to hope lightning strikes before 2014?

aclayman wrote:Murphy was definitely raking before the injury, but keep in mind he also missed all of 2010 with a ligament tear even before the one last year. If the Mets want a halfway decent piece in return, I'm not sure we wouldn't be better off seeing what Jason Donald can do in that corner infield / outfield role. I might be in the minority, but I feel like Donald can be a solid every day player, given the ABs. Not an all-star, maybe, but also not worlds beneath Dan Murphy by any means. This pro-Donald stance, of course, only exists in a world where undeniably better options don't exist.
