O'Neill is hitting .244/.328/.479 with 19 HR in AAA this season. Hit .293/.374/.508 with 24 HR in AA last year, .260/.316/.558 with 32 HR in high A the year before. He was the Mariners' #2 prospect according to MLB.com and a consensus top-100 prospect.
This is an INCREDIBLE trade! Gave up a guy who basically has no future here and whose upside is pretty limited for a top 50 prospect who has huge power and upside. And he actually takes walks! Immediately becomes our best hitting prospect and probably is 2nd best overall behind Reyes.
If you wanna see what Seattle fans think of this, check this out. They are furious .

I also have to think another move is coming to clear up the OF logjam. The next 10 days will be interesting.
