    I know. I'm just trying to use the most simple words possible. That usually works for most people, obviously not for all.

    Interesting Twitter tidbit:


    Joe Pompliano@JoePompliano

    6) Mariano Rivera was a 13x All-Star and 5x World Series Champion as a member of the NY Yankees

    But one stat stands above all the rest...

    More people have walked on the moon (12) than men who have scored against Mariano Rivera in the postseason (11).

    GOAT.

    No it wasnít a clear win for the exact reason you just said . Then there is the fact that hicks batting average is less than 30 points higher than Murphyís despite being in the majors for longer . So yeah the Yankees havenít been the clear winner of that trade . I mean for Peteís sake the Yankees traded a low level prospect for an injury prone #4 outfielder . Thatís not much of a trade to brag about .

    Jorge now I am convinced you are just trolling, or have a very weird sense of humor. You can not honestly believe Yanks lost that trade. Murphy in an 8 yr career has played a whopping 284 games and average of 35 games a season. He's changed addresses 5 times in that 8 years. Do I even need to list Hicks stats, injuries or not the comparison is a no brainer.

    I didnít say the Yankees lost either . But they clearly didnít win either . At best it was barely a win . I mean again they traded a low level prospect for an injury prone number 4 outfielder . That is not a great victory by any means . And you canít tell me that hicks isnít a number 4 outfielder . He shouldnít be playing everyday .

    This is the prospect thread and this is my final comment. I am not telling you Hicks isn't a 4th OFer, the Yankee org is telling you he is the starting CFer for the NY Yankees, maybe the marquee position in all of the MLB.

    This is my final comment on this . The Yankees have a career .234 hitter with a career 89 hrs starting at what is maybe the marquee position in all of the mlb , if you donít see that there is something wrong with that then thatís your problem but I do .

    You are quite adept at relocating the goal posts. The discussion was on the merits of the trade, Murphy for Hicks. The point was made that the Yankees clearly won the trade. Imo this is indisputable, regardless of the injuries or BA or the number of HR's he's hit.

    Would I rather have a Trout or Springer? Hell yeah...but we have Hicks. You might be interested in the following, he ain't nearly as bad as you suggest:

    9. AARON HICKS, YANKEES
    When heís healthy, Hicksí production would easily slot him within the top five of this group. He produced an .874 OPS between the first half of 2017 and with the 2018 campaign combined, totaling 37 homers, 130 runs scored along with a .260/.382/.491 split line over 197 games. However, the run has twice been interrupted by significant injuries, first an oblique injury in 2017, then an elbow issue that required Tommy John surgery, which ended his 2019 as well.

    Even with all the injuries still considered a top 10 CFer in all MLB. FanGraphs also has him in top 10 as does MLB network.

    For me MJ is at the top of the list as well as his teammate on the Wizards Charles Oakley. Joe Willy to LA. How about Yogi in a Mets uni. Ewing to Magic. Pete Rose to Expos.

    So two decent years and I am supposed to think he is the best cf out there ? He missed significant time on the IL those years . I mean if he is so good why did they feel the need to keep bringing Gardner back year after year , including this year ? The guy is an average 4th outfielder because up to this point his body hasnít been able to last long enough to be depended on all year . The only thing I give credit to hicks for is that he walks alotv, hence his good obp . He reminds me of nick johnson if anything .
