    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

    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.

    Spell it out for you....

    It's ironic because that's what the Tigers traded (along with Phil Coke) to get Granderson.

    Wish we had a young cheap Austin Jackson under control... The only reason the deal looks as bad as it does now in hind sight is because of the new bargaining agreement and the 189 tax. If the Yankees had known that, I feel like they might have approached things a little more delicately.

    I can't complain. We got a WS on the backs of A Rod and CC and Tex was great the entire time.

    Yuck. A year of a 32 year old on the decline for a possible #3 starter?

    How's that for a deal?
    HAHAHAHA this is a joke!!

    There is no way in the world the Nats make that deal. 3 major leaguers and a prospect for an overpaid aging 1st baseman? YEAH RIGHT!

    Ethier and Capuano for Granderson...


    I can dream can't I?

    Dodgers, Lakers, Raiders.
    Fok Jelle Naiers

    They`re = contraction of they are
    There = used to describe location
    Their = pronoun used to describe belonging
    Should've = contraction of should have
    Should of = makes no sense at all

    It's not rebuilding. It's "retooling" With less expensive, less used tool that haven't been used enough yet to know if they really work.


    I'm all for Granderson being traded. Use his money to help elsewhere.
    I have no problem with signing Ichiro to play RF and gardner in left. Then give Dickerson a chance to play or at least be a stop gap in Center.
    Or if we can find a corner OF, move gardner to CF.

    Is Bourne still available?

His ERA is .5 better than Hughes and in the national league and in giant stadiums, and he's given up a decent amount of home runs as well in those giant fields. Though this year Hughes did give up a lot of bombs, he's a fly ball/strikeout pitcher in Yankee Stadium. I'll admit it was abnormal***

    If Hughes put an identical year together, like Sanchez did of 9-13 with a 3.86 or even 4.0 ERA and had identical strike out numbers just as both did last year (Sanchez 167, Hughes 165) not to mention nearly identical whips (Hughes' was better) ...

    Yeah you can bet he'll demand 6 years $90m


    ... Yankees aren't giving that out to anyone next year. It doesn't matter if Hughes went out there and clicked like Halladay did late in his 20's after many trials and tribulation and became a dominant ace. If that situation arose the ONLY way they would keep him is if they could move CC, which they couldn't.

    *They are cashing in.
    well that doesnt mean he's going to get it. you can ask for whatever you want

    Becuase unloding an aging, overpayed veteran for all the inexpensive youth another team has realy ever happens.

    Yeah, sure. While you're at it, see if the Mariners throw in Jesus Montero for Joba Chamberlain?

    Really? You honestly believe the Angels are set on trading Trout. I'm guessing this is just wishful thinking. Maybe if the Yankees include Teixeira (becaue the Angels have a tremendous need for another 1B - that Pujols guys really sucks!) and are willing to take Mike Trumbo off the Angels hands along with Trout, everyone will be happy.

    Granderson's a great guy, but he hasn't batted over .270 in 5 years, and in 3 of those he was under .250. To go with that, his OBP has only been over .320 once in the last 4 years. Sure the 43 home runs and 106 RBIs look nice, but the guy is a black hole at the plate otherwise. 75 walks and 195 strikeouts is atrocious. Is that a guy that's worth the 5 year contract he's gonna look for at big dollar value? Absolutely not. Trade him now for whatever you can get, get under that $189m next year, and then go on a spree if players are available.

    There was a rumor on twitter that Yanks were working on terms of a deal sending Grandy to Kansas City for Alex Gordon, anyone know anything of that? I can't find nothing besides some ahole's post.

    Next, would you guys do that deal? I'm still debating
