Seth SmithThe Colorado Rockies completed a trade on Monday, shipping Seth Smith to the Oakland Athletics for pitchers Guillermo Moscoso and Josh Outman. The move should put the finishing touches on the Rockies main priority this offseason.

Seth Smith Traded to Oakland

Before last season, I had touted Seth Smith as somewhat of an undervalued asset to fantasy baseball players. He was on many of my teams in which the league stretched to 14-plus teams and, for a good part of the season, he was a borderline top 100 fantasy player. He had too really bad months, July and September, which unfortunately brought his overall numbers down. Another reason...

Oakland Acquires Seth Smith From Colorado

The Oakland Athletics continued to demolish their pitching staff by trading starting pitchers Guillermo Moscoso and Josh Outman to the Colorado Rockies for outfielder Seth Smith. Smith gives Oakland a solid outfielder and a legitimate cleanup hitter for a team lacking in offense.

A's acquire Rockies outfielder Seth Smith in deal for Guillermo Moscoso, Josh Outman

Continuing their flurry of offseason moves, the A's traded pitchers Josh Outman and Guillermo Moscoso to the Colorado Rockies on Monday for outfielder Seth Smith.

Some thoughts on Moscoso

Part of the Rockies’ return package for Seth Smith is right-hander Guillermo Moscoso, who made 21 starts for the Athletics in 2011. Moscoso had some cups-of-coffee with the Rangers as a reliever in 2009 and 2010, but last year was the first time we got a good look (128 innings) at what Moscoso he has to offer. In short, he has a decent fastball and underwhelming off-speed pitches...
