    A-rod to the Phillies?

    Would you want him at 3b?

    Depends on how much contract the Yankees are willing to eat...

    I'd do it for the six million a year we were paying polanco...

    I doubt they accept that though...

    And what would we give up for the Yankees eating 23 million a year?

    A-rod on any NL team is a bad move. Guy is going to be a train wreck soon at 3rd base in terms of fielding.

    Yeah, why not. Because what we need more of are old players who are declining, injury prone, and paid a ton of money

    The only problem is that he has another 5 years on his contract, so even if the yankees eat a large portion of the money we still have him until he's 42.

    It's a shame that there's just no possible way we can do this, I actually think A-Rod would do pretty well at CBP and help us in the short term (which is how our team is built anyway).

    It seems pretty clear that the over/under on games in the field is somewhere around 65. Any NL GM who trades for him should be fired out of hand.

    Even if the Yankees paid 95% of the contract and we gave up nothing?

    ARod had 6 extra base hits during the last month of the season. He's never going to be better than average, and he will continue to get worse.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    FWIW he was still a 2 WAR player

    How funny/sadistic that would be.

    Ruben trades for A-Rod, and immediately gets fired. All the Ruben haters are in a predicament.
    Was it actually a good move?
    Yeah, we're ****ed with A-Rod, but at least Ruben is gone.
