The boys at USSM, more specifically Dave Cameron, have come up with 3 logical scenarios for the Brandon Morrow trade.
I'd like to submit a 4th option...
Jack Z was getting too good at his job! Every other GM was going to be scared of him if he didn't throw a few stinkers out there. Now when he's got another sucker GM hooked in and they say "Wait a second Jacky Boy!!!! You never make dumb moves... that means your fleecing me pal! NO DEAL!!!", Jack can fire back with "No sir, remember that Morrow trade? All I got for a former 1st round pick was a relief pitcher and a crummy prospect! I can't win em all!"
In Jack we trust.
Happy Hanukkah (sp?) everyone!
