    DOA for the A’s. They can’t possibly take on that much salary while simultaneously sacrificing long term control in Murphy and Jefferies. They’d be swapping the durable Fiers for Paxton who could pull his lat waking up on the wrong side of the bed. They probably also see Sanchez as a DH, which makes this even worse.

    • Chad Lynn

      Agreed. With Oakland’s foul territory, Sanchez as anything but DH is an absolutely brainless move …

      … unless of course you WANT 10 stolen bases per game (and probably a couple runs) on passed balls.

      • Alex G

        Not sure if you’ve ever watched Sanchez but he has one of the best throwing arms in the league. he’s far from a stolen base liability.

        • Chad Lynn

          Operative phrases: “passed balls” “Oakland’s foul territory”

          Good arm? Sure.

          Craptastic framing and receiving that would lead to him running 12 yards to the backstop around once an inning, allowing runners to not worry about his arm?

          Yep.

    This would pretty much be the equivalent to the Yankees punting on the season, trading 2 bullpen mainstays, their #2 starter, and a top 3 hitting catcher for clear pitching downgrades and a prospect catcher who while much younger is unknown at the big league level.
