Apparently, some O's fans (O's message board) think we should add either Matt Purke, Matt Skole or Destin Hood in any deal with Morse.
They feel that would make a deal for someone like Arrieta "fair'.
I've seen this as well. They are saying it would have to be one of the prospects in order to get Arrieta and Strop or Patton. They seem to think that the Nats want a 6th starter and think Arrieta would be the guy. He would add a righty to the pen and if someone gets hurt, he gets promoted. I'd take Duke over Arrieta as a 6th starter, and I think an outside shot of signing Vazquez to a MiLB deal with a June 1 opt out makes much more sense.
I'm sorry to to anyone that has any feelings toward the O's, but I don't think the O's match up as well as some would think. I still set my sights on Seattle.
What I'm getting is that O's fans really over value the hell out of their players.
