Mariners acquire Russell Branyan

The Mariners just traded to get Russell Branyan back from the Cleveland Indians. In doing so, they gave up promising Class AAA outfield prospect Ezequiel Carrera and minor league shortstop Juan Diaz.
When I first heard of this, I have to admit, I thought it was a hoax. The Mariners could have re-signed Branyan last winter. Now, they’re giving up a pretty talented outfielder from the minors and another guy for a guy well into his 30s. With the team 14 games out of first place.
Ok, then. Would have liked to see this move last winter, when the team still had a chance.
