Re: Todd Jones traded
O'Brien turns a guy released in ST into a 26-year old who may turn into a 5th-starter or long reliever and a SS prospect who will probably end up a useful bench player. I got no problem with that.
With Olmedo, Lopez, Machado, Tiburcio and Janish, I think our SS depth is very solid right now. Probably no all-stars in the group, but enough depth that one should emerge as a decent starter. May be a trading chip in there, too.
Wouldn't mind seeing O'Brien concentrate on getting pitching, if more trades are to come.
