Mariners acquire Michael Morse

The Yankees were said to be interested in Michael Morse the second he hit the trading block, but alas, you can put him into the pile of supposed targets who won't be suiting up for the Bombers in 2013. Multiple outlets are reporting that Washington has agreed to send Morse to the Mariners as part of a three team deal that also includes Oakland. Seattle is sending John Jaso to the A's who, in turn, are sending a package of prospects that includes A.J. Cole to Washington. Seems like a good deal for just about everyone but Seattle, and I'm not sure the Yankees could have realistically beaten the return it looks like the Nats will be getting. Shucks.
