I'm glad they want consistent production from the DH spot. I wish they were committed to the same from CF and SP.
It does seem like Morales just kind of fell into their lap. No player to surrender in trade, no draft pick to give up, no long-term commitment, not even that much of a short-term cash commitment really, after most/all internal options at the position failed? Kind of a no-brainer to get Morales at that point. Still, they're not the only team looking for talent, and they made it happen, so some credit is due.
That said, if they really hope to compete now, or in the future where it's obvious that not every internal option works, the bigger challenge is plugging holes where 99% of the time, there isn't a freely available player like Morales. With season comeback comparisons to 2009 -- can TR swing Pavano, Rauch, and Cabrera types at the deadline? Can he find another Hughes in the FA market (and avoid the Pelfreys and maybe even Nolascos)?
