Volquez added that he's willing to start or relieve for the Dodgers.
    It wouldn't surprise me if Volquez turned into an above average reliever.

    Well, make it or not there is no doubt the Buccos are going for it any way they can - more power to them.

    Trading off Alex Presley is hardly going all-in. They haven't moved top prospects for a rental to win now. They are making smart moves that help the now with little impact on the later IMO. The Reds could be making moves (though no need for Morneau) in the same manner, but I wonder how much the maxed out budget is stopping them.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    All in, in the sense of making every move they can to win this year. If by "later" you mean next year/future years, then yeah, they're going all in with these trades.

    The DNA is the only constant between this Morneau and the one we remember.
