Kurt Suzuki traded to the A's

So who made out better on Suzuki's round trip from Oakland to Washington and back? Last year it was Suzuki to the Nats for David Freitas, a catcher now in AAA at age 24. Now Suzuki goes back to Oakland for Dakota Bacus, a 22-year old pitcher with Oakland's high A club. I think Oakland got the better of this exchange because they made the playoffs last year without Suzuki, may make the playoffs again, and in the interim they avoided about $6 mm in salary obligations to a player who has been worth a total of 0.2 rWAR in the last two seasons combined. The Nats would have been in the playoffs last year with or without Suzuki, he's stunk this year, and they've had to pay about $6 mm.

    • And winning not 1, not 2, not 3 not....
    • Oh lord, name calling? Must be a hillbilly.
    • I’m not sure of your point but I agree with you.  I don’t believe the drop in defense from Mateo to Henderson will be that much.   
    • Part of the reason Henderson did not play SS primarily is because of who else was on the team.   If Holliday is that great, Henderson can move in 2-3 years or Holliday can start at 2B or 3B.  We should have such problems.
    • I know you are just trying to make a point, but I don't think that Rutschman is far off of being one of the best defensive catchers in baseball.  Mateo is a LONG way from being the best offensive shortstop in baseball.
    • Well of course it did cost Seattle their 1,3, 5 prospects to now be in a position to sign him to this pre free agent deal
