Default A's trade Chris Carter+ to Astros for Jed Lowrie

http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/h...er-deal-020413

This one sticks in my craw a bit as an Astros fan, I thought Lowrie was one of the pieces they had in place to build around.

The other prospects coming back are quality, but Chris Carter actually turning things around and becoming an impact player at age 26 and after 1000 mediocre ABs in AAA is a bit iffy. Seems a desperation move to get a AL power bat.

Sadly, it seems all this really does is punt the rebuild down the road another 2 years.
