Pssst, don't forget to tell them about the pitchers, too.

Pitching wins.

Further, holding Moran's lack of playing time against him - as your post does - makes little sense. Moran will be 25 this season. Alvarez was sent back to the minors at age 24 and had his breakthrough season at age 25, when he hit 30 HR's. Using the playing time approach, you would have ripped Alvarez before the 2012 season.


Pretty sure we all did, mate.

Hence why we're still talking about El Toro these years later.

I guess I “like” the Cole trade better now than when it happened, but it still bothers me that we are taking the spare parts of the true contenders. When we trade our spare parts it’s to shed salary or get 2 month rentals.

Spare parts?
Because a guy is blocked he's spare parts?
What about Brian Giles?

Yes spare parts. Moran was blocked not only at the MLB level, but at AAA as well. He was their 3rd best option at 3B. We got Giles for a Loogy not a formal number 1 pick that is entering his prime with 2 years of control.

That is good. I would say this group is more in line with a used Corolla though.
