But trading a bunch of young talent for a backup catcher is foolish.

Not like Clement is a long term option for him unless they don't like Soto that much.

He is a luxury for the Cubs, not a need.

If only we could convince the NL to add the DH.:D

Just a guess but maybe the Mariners only want to include a guy like Morrow and that's it and AM is looking for 2-3 guys to give more depth.

To be honest, if we get Clement and A Jones, there are a lot of combinations of guys after that I would be happy with.

I am just hoping Clement for Brignac is possible.

That gives us 2 blue chippers to put right on the team immediately.

Question is, can we get Pie??

If you have Jones why would you want Pie?

Well in the specified deal, the Cubs would have been making out like bandits. I would have taken the deal in a heartbeat, then shopped Soto and Clement around to see what I could get.

Is it the .266 BAA or the 5.26 E.R.A. in single A ball that attracts you most?:002_ssuprised:

The fact that he is 19 has something to do with that.

Baseball Prospectus rated him a 4 star prospect as well.

BTW, how is it that Morrow is a PROVEN MLB commodity? He had a 7 BB rate and only pitched 63 innings, playing in a pitchers park and division.

Right, but I doubt the M's send Clement and Jones with Morrow. I have a feeling it'll be an actual prospect with those two, not a proven MLB player.

Morrow is anything but proven.

I'm telling you, 3 way with the M's and Brewers:

Orioles get:

A. Jones, Morrow, Escobar

Brewers get:

Clement

Mariners get:

Bedard

This is why I'd prefer to keep Clement. He could play 1st base, IMO.

I understand the desire for Brignac.

That'd be like acquiring Hu and playing him at 3B. His value just isn't as high there.

If you acquire Clement, you really need to flip him for somebody at a position of need.
