No one is going to trade a young star player under team control, for two one year players with fillers.
Jason Heyward 3 yr car .261 avg. 59 Hr. Andrew McCutchen 4 yr. car. .290 avg 82 Hr. Gio Staton 3 yr. career .270 avg. 93 Hr. Carlos Gonzalez 5 yr. Car. .299 99 Hr.
These stats say they are good players, that are young and have the ability to be great. Hughes and Granderson are goo players that have helped lead the Yankees to the postseason. Also why do you guys think the teams trading for Hughes and Granderson wouldn't be able to resign them. If they are that worthless they surely wouldn't get big money offers as free agents.
A lot of guys can't handle pressure of playing in New York. R. Johnson, Burnett, Pavano, K. Brown, K. Rogers, J. Vasquez, C. Knoblauch, A-Rod, and Tex all had better years before New York or after leaving New York. Granderson and especially Hughes would benefit from a trade. Chamberlain also could be a closer for another team. McCutchen may not be attainable, but I really think Heyward and Staton would be possible.
Why doesn't anyone understand we aren't doing anything of note until 2015?
Give me an outfield of Ichiro, Gardner and Hamilton.
let Swisher walk and trade Granderson
Can't trade Granderson don't you know that. Everybody on the Yankees suck. They win 90 plus games with a bunch of players nobody wants.
1. All those guys are younger than Granderson.
2. All those guys make less money than Granderson.
3. All those guys are under team control longer than Granderson.
Why do you want Stanton, Heyward, and McCutchen more than Granderson? Becuase they're young, cheap, and under team control? Well those are the same reasons that the Marlins, Pirates, and As will want a heck of a lot more than Granderson in return.
