    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.

    Vastly overrated in his prime? Really?

    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

    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.

    Depends on how you rate him.

    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

    He also has a .322 Career BA with RISP and a .331 BA with RISP w/2 outs. It doesn't get more clutch than that.

    So his career batting average matches his batting average with RISP. How is that clutch? Seems to me it simply means he's the same hitter he always was.

    Look at Robinson Cano's career BA with RISP and RISP with two outs and compare it with his career BA and tell me that.

    Itchy is an excellent player. Anyone who thinks otherwise is blind.

    None of that has to do with my point. I've said he's good, simply overrated by some. And at this point, he's not the same guy anymore. I mean, ARod has a ton of accolades. But we know he's not the ARod of 2005.
