I would trade Grandyman for the best package of positional player prospects, seeing we have a weak farm system in which we don't even use other then to trade for some useless veteran.
Grandy is going to suck dog balls this year. Breaking Rob Deers records and Adam Dunns
I'd resign Grandy, Sign Josh and trade Cano
I'd trade Grandy in a heartbeat if we could get a spec that is very close to ML ready, but if that's not the case I'd rather keep him to weather this storm until we get under $189 million
"We the best in the league, Tony!"
I'd trade Granderson in a heartbeat if we can get back some value. Other than his HR production, he has little value IMO. I believe that the only reason he hits 40 HRs a year is because of Yankee Stadium. He is a below average defender in CF and strikes out way too much.
The guy was a slap hitter with speed and great defense. Nothing more. He got a ton of hits, but he also never drew walks and had little power. And I'm not talking HR power. Even gap power for extra base hits. Honestly, a cavern like Safeco should have actually helped him get some XBHs. So if you think we was a very good ball player, no argument. If you claim he's a top 10 hitter of all time, which I've heard, you're simply wrong.
Perhaps if the Mariners strike out by getting the hitters they want they would be willing to give up LHPs Danny Hultzen and Tyler Pike for granderson. Maybe we can get montero back to catch
Itchy is an excellent player. Anyone who thinks otherwise is blind.
10 all star games
10 gold gloves
Oh, and he has a career .346 avg and .400 obp in the postseason.
