Prince For Putz?

ESPN donkey Steve Phillips mentions rumblings of a Prince Fielder to Seattle (Jack Z connection) for JJ Putz and others. Re-read the first five words of this post and draw your own conclusions of the validity of this rumor.

Apparently its Putz and Morrow for Fielder + 2 prospects. Per Seattle area sports talk radio, anyhow. Sounds like a fuckjob to me. No thanks.

Yikes!

I love JJ (From WI, but live in seattle, go to a LOT of M's games, even went on JJPutz Soul patch night!), but last year was NOT a good year for JJ, and he might be on his way down. Dude does a hilarious radio show before sunday games, great personality, but I'm not sure he's the closer that the crew needs.

BUT: Morrow? Awesome. He was converted to a starter late this year and will be good for a few years. It might be a reasonable trade. It would move 2 of my favorite M's to my real favorite team, though...

Seattle needs the bat and a first basemen. We've kind of struck out on that position for the last few years...

You mean Richie Sexson didn't pan out? Ha.

haha, understatement of the year!

And to think back at how sad I was to see him (Sexson) go...

horrible trade, we could get putz for weeks and a prospect or 2. Jack Z still has his ego to protect and he is the reason weeks saw as much time as he has the past couple of years not Yost.
