Those Moneyball guys looooove to trade. 6-4-2 chronicles the Dodgers/Mariners trade. Looks like the M's got fleeced. Just another smooth move by Bavasi.

Remember just a few days ago in my preview how I said the M's were in trouble? Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit A.

They didn't give up anyone major, but you gotta wonder, since both guys would be wonderful throw-ins for a midyear type deal involving better players instead of taking crap off the hands of the Dodgers.

That is exactly the type of move smart GM's make, and DePodesta knows it. Psychologically it makes him have a sense of depth for his team as far as minor league and tradable players, and in the last week his barely noticed moves have given him a lot more $1 chips at a table full of guys with $20 chips but rocks for brains. H-U-S-T-L-E-R. Just watch.
