Is it me or is this resemble a trade that Jimbo would pull?
True, but when you don't have even have a #2 starter, you gotta start somewhere. Unless we are willing to trade Dunn (which thankfully DO seems as reluctant to do that as we are) or lock into $20-25M for three years with a FA (something else they have shown no willingness to do), this is what other teams are willing to give up.
Ortiz is not the answer, but Moseley has mixed reviews around these parts, which tells me no one is real sure what/if he will enjoy much, if any, major league success. Not a great loss on that end from what I've read.
