Podcast: Who won the Yuniesky Betancourt trade? More like how much did they win by?

Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik was a lot happier this afternoon than he was later on, when his team lost 6-4 to the Texas Rangers. Not much to say about this game. Brandon Morrow didn’t have great command of his breaking stuff and paid a price by only lasting five innings. No strikeouts. Two homers. Four walks. These Rangers can hit a fastball.
So, let’s talk trade.


More specifically, let’s analyze today’s Yuniesky Betancourt trade and see who came out ahead. If I was Zdureincik, I would have been rolling around in the dirt, kicking my heels and howling with unfettered laughter and happiness.
OK, maybe not. Would ruin a good suit jacket.
So, let me just talk about it.
