I'd love to see him on the Northside of Chicago, bring him home TheoJed.
Victorino just got a 3 year 39 million dollar deal at 32 years old. Prime example - inflation of current market values.
If he got that, Granderson would get what on this market?
5/90 - easy
If he puts the same power numbers up and raises his batting average to 250 hes getting 5/100
I don't want to hear "The Yankees have too many holes as it is already" those arguments are invalid.
He's not going to be a Yankee, he will be traded in the coming days, count on it.
They didn't trade what they traded for him to let him have a great year and slip off. They are keeping Cano, Granderson and Hughes will be gone.
People keep saying "look what Pagan got"..
Well Pagan may not be a 40 HR hitter, but he isn't a bad player. Steals bases, something Grandy doesn't do anymore. Is a legit hitter, had a much better average, and had a better WAR than Granderson. Looking at his splits, I'd bet his power numbers would jump quite a bit playing half his games in Yankee Stadium.
I honestly doubt anyone would be offering Granderson 5 for 100
I can't remember when the Yankees were the ones selling on a power hitter in his prime.... lets not even mention getting good value.
Latest rumor Grandy to Phillie for Cliff Lee.
Arizona is about to deal Pitching prospect,Brauer to Clev. For Cabrera( that solves their need for a SS).
Which brings me to this, Ariz. needs starting pitching and Phillies want an OF'er but feel that Lee is better the Upton, Ariz. feels Upton is equal value-- hence the deal hasn't been made.
But if the Yanks give Phil. Grandy, then Ariz. gets Lee and we get Upton who will be making 9.5 mil this year freeing up 5.5 mil. For us to use on someone else.
How many more *******s will we have to listen to talking about Upton's upside potential? Look at his brother. Lots of potential and crappy results. Justin is the same. He's just not that good. He has hit his peak and won't get much better and see his skills slide faster than his big brother. He's a whiner and overrated to say the least. He's just not that good.
Package CG with some others for a decent catcher and pitching. We can fill OF holes from within and we always need pitching. We don't need another overrated OF with upside.
Sign AJ and jettison Grandy and Cano in a mega deal for pitching. Enough of this half assed patchwork
Swisher is rumored to be going to the Orioles, (nice out field with Jones and Markakis), and if we trade Granderson, then Justin Upton or Hamilton is really all that is left with Ichiro waiting in the wings...any thoughts?
olt and leoynis martin for granderson. both are under contract for a good 4+ years. olt can cover for arod at 3b while l.martin can start at cf rite away.
by acquiring granderson, rangers get a cheaper option then hamilton(5yr 90mill should keep grandy).
^ I'm sure 90mill will keep Josh also.
