    Over the past 6 seasons (2009 was the first he played more than 91 games), Headley has provided nearly as much value as Wright at 3B. Wright has the offense while Headley has the defense.

    - He is two years younger
    - Cheaper: 4/52 vs. 6/107
    - Wright is coming off the worst season of his career


    Niese hasn't pitched 200 innings in any season. He is decent but nothing special.

    As much as I like Grandy he has put together two consecutive horrible seasons.

    I actually wanted Colon on a short deal but not grouped in that package.

    I think they dialed the wrong number or playing a prank on the Yanks

    Steamer 2015 projections are 8.2 fWAR for the Yankees in the deal and 6.5 fWAR for the Mets in the deal.

    Both Headley and Garner are better than any players in that deal, so I wouldn't trade them even up for Wright and Granderson. Niese and Colon for Warren and Drew sounds somewhat fair. Niese has been injured, but the fact that he is a lefty is a plus. It's a gamble; if Niese is able to pitch he's worth more than Warren, if not, Warren's better. Then you got Drew for Colon. I hate Drew, so I'd trade him for a bag of balls, so why not for the big fat nosepicker.

    God awful idea.

    Headley and Drew are likely top-10 contributors at their respective positions in 2015.

    Wright is worth a great deal, I have more faith in him than Steamer. But (and I love the guy, but have to be realistic) Granderson is basically done as a fielder, done as a runner, and may be done with the bat.

    Everything else is trash.

    Let me put it this way...the Mets would make this deal in a heartbeat and would send some $$ along with it if Wright wasn't the only name they had filling seats last year.
    We’re pointing out that these statistics breed false narratives, and we value the truth. This isn’t about replacing old numbers with new numbers, or attempting to dissuade anyone from enjoying the aesthetics of the game. It is simply about telling the average fan about the reality of what actually happened on the field. The “Holy Trinity” of baseball statistics fail at this most basic task, and so they are not worth deifying any longer. - Dave Cameron
