Mariners - Acquired Broussard; DFAed Everett
Seattle Mariners - Acquired 1B Ben Broussard from the Cleveland Indians for OF Shin-Soo Choo; designated Carl Everett for assignment.
The reasoning for the Broussard trade is simple.
The Mariners now have both parts of the unbelievably productive Indian platoon on the team, which is a big improvement over Jurassic Carl. Maybe the Mariners can convince him that guaranteed contracts aren’t in the bible. After being both unproductive and disruptive, I’m sure the team would’ve been happy if he had been turned into a pillar of salt or something.
Broussard came cheaply as Choo’s not a very good bet to be a starter in the majors, but considering the Brewers got so little of future value for Carlos Lee, Mark Shapiro may have done well just to get someone above the organizational soldier level of prospectishness. Broussard simply didn’t fit in the teams’ long-term plans as they still would like to find a place for Ryan Garko to play and Victor Martinez’ move away from catcher seems more a question of when than if.
