Yep, pretty simple.
I'm ok wth Davis at 1b although I wonder how well he'll hold up over a season.
That said, I'm not OK with Betemit as a DH/role player. They need an OF/IB/DH type hitter so hopefully they pick up a player by opening day.
the O's barely sneaked in the playoff door. I'm not knocking that accomplishment. but a team who slipped in at the lowest slot, can't afford to reduce the quality of their team.
as a side note, Morse was interviewed after Laroche signed, and he said he isn't interested in being a DH.
Having said that, it might take too much to make a deal. The Nationalsí wish list includes young pitching, including a left-handed reliever. The Orioles are willing to offer up some of their young arms not named Bundy or Gausman, but given the interest that Morse will draw -- at least a half-dozen teams have interest -- Washington will have its choice of offers.
The Natsí asking price will likely be high -- it appeared to be too high for the Orioles back in December -- and expect that to rise with the number of suitors because after all, they donít definitively need to deal Morse.
