This is my second article dedicated to my good friend, Ben Brown.
In his article, Seattle Mariner Fans: What Do We Do With Jeff Clement?, he stated that Clement was the "odd man out" for the Mariners, referring to the position of catcher and first base being filled on the Mariners roster.
Ben did say, however, that DH could be a good spot for Clement.
What does Ben want to do with Clement, even though DH is still open?
To the Red Sox.
What happened last time we traded a catcher like this to that team when they had an aging catcher?
He was the Mariners' Christmas gift to the Red Sox, along with Derek Lowe.
So, why do it again?
The reward would be Justin Masterson or Clay Buchholz
Buchholz has fallen apart and will never be the same.
Masterson, I kind of like.
Of course, other teams need a catcher, or a new catcher to replace their old ones in a few years. However, those teams won't put up enough for them.
Jack, keep Clement for now. The kid is a first-round pick and is not worth anything any other team would put up for him.
Let the kid grow, and maybe he can play third or DH.
