Washburn to Detroit, LHPs French, Robles to Seattle.
Unlike my snap assessment of the last major trade made by the Mariners (which Scott and I initially disagreed on) this one makes perfect sense for a selling club. While the two pitchers coming Seattle’s way are probably not as “stellar” as the NYT blog suggests, it is an excellent return according to Dave Cameron over at USS Mariner.
What the NYT did get right was that Washburn was traded at perhaps the peak of his value, which is excellent GM-ing in anybody’s book.
