    I feel like Morales is a sunk cost and Bautista is a marginal upgrade on him.
    I won’t make a numerical argument for it but that’s my sense.

    I’d probably dump Morales for nothing (like, retain most of his salary to get a reliever) and sign Jose for a few million. He would have to want to play part time and move between different positions.

    But of all the potential moves out there it’s hard to justify doing that. Surely there are superior free agents left who wouldn’t cost very much and would be better than Jose.

    how much did Jose think he was getting paid 2 years ago? lol the big contract that never happened. both he and Edwin got greedy and started counting their money before they ever got the big deal.

    This year I think most fans have come to the understanding that Jose is over the hill, through the woods and eating breakfast at grannies house

    it was a good ride but now he's yesterdays news. Thanks for all the years but no thanks this time around

    Nah, EE was professional throughout.

    Jose stopped being a douche after getting clocked by Odor. His numbers started tanking same time.

    He may be old and slow, but he was easy to ridicule - and most of us have had fun doing it!

    He had a great career but the time has come, maybe a year too late.
