Welcome to Day Two

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 08, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

As Day Two gets started in Indianapolis, there are some important facts and one rumor that probably won’t go away anytime soon.

Potential free agents who were offered arbitration had until midnight last night to accept. Most declined and became free agents. Relievers Rafael Betancourt and Rafael Soriano (who’s been linked to the Yankees) were the only Type As to accept arbitration. Carl Pavano was the only Type B to accept.

That’s significant only because it further defines the free agent market. Getting Soriano would require a trade with the Braves, but Jason Marquis, Mark DeRosa, Justin Duchscherer, Brandon Lyon and the rest are fair game.

The rumor that’s sure to generate discussion — and was already creating buzz last night — is the proposed three-way trade that would send Curtis Granderson to the Yankees, with Ian Kennedy, Austin Jackson, Phil Coke and Mike Dunn being shipped to the Tigers and Diamondbacks. The blockbuster was apparently proposed by Arizona and – no surprise – the Diamondbacks would seem to be the obvious winners in the deal. The Yankees would have gotten the best player while also giving up the best prospects. The Tigers would have given up the only proven big leaguers.

Stay tuned, but early word was that the deal was rejected by at least one team, maybe two. A trade like that will create buzz whether it has legs or not.

UPDATE, 9:50 a.m.: It now seems that every report on the three-way Granderson trade says it’s either highly unlikely or completely dead.

    I don’t like the trade – giving up too much, especially if A-Jax can be a legit CF option.

  2. Sal December 8th, 2009 at 8:50 am

    Steep price for a .249 hitter.

  3. Blackaccord December 8th, 2009 at 8:50 am

    curtis granderson for Ian Kennedy, Austin Jackson, Phil coke and Mike Dunn?? That’s an awful lot of young talent for one player… I’m guessing the yanks would have been one of the teams which rejected the deal..

  4. Paco Dooley December 8th, 2009 at 8:52 am

    I should have followed the link before commenting. It’s funny to read:

    ” The proposed deal is being pushed by the D-Backs, but was rejected by at least one of the two other teams, the source says.”

    Why is this news then? Every team can float trades that put them in a winning position, only to have the other teams (one or BOTH) reject the trade. No, this is not news.

  5. Christian December 8th, 2009 at 8:53 am

    If Brian Cashmann pulls the trigger on this trade, he’s on the way out of NY!
    This would, in my opinion be a disaster of a deal. 4 players with ML experience and/or promise for on Center Fielder who cant hit lefties… DO NOT DO IT.

    Are all people that exited about Curtis?? The Yankees loose bullpen depth plus one promising prospect and one prospect who could me a pleasant back up surprise.

  6. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 8:55 am

    We hope Austin Jackson is as good as Granderson. I’ll do a similar deal if I was Cashman with tweak here and there.

  7. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 8th, 2009 at 8:56 am

    WHat a hot load this is. I hate Arizona for even more reasons now. Can’t we just give that state back to Mexico?

  8. Laura - Bring back Matsui in 2010! December 8th, 2009 at 8:57 am

    This deal sucks for us because we are giving away too much. Remove Jackson and I’d do it.

  10. Erin December 8th, 2009 at 8:57 am

    Not a fan of that trade. Seems like the Yankees would be giving up a lot for one player.

  11. Mike RI December 8th, 2009 at 8:58 am

    I agree .. we’d be giving up WAY too much.

  12. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 8th, 2009 at 8:59 am

    Laura,

    I wouldn’t include Dunn or Jackson. It would be more like Kennedy, Coke, Melky & Snickelfritz.

  13. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 8:59 am

    “This deal sucks for us because we are giving away too much. Remove Jackson and I’d do it.”

    You’re not getting Granderson without Jackson. I think Cashman is going to make the deal one way or another.

  14. EdWhitson December 8th, 2009 at 9:01 am

    I find reporters usually get the main players right, but lose the details. For instance, the Yankees probably want Curtis and may part with some combination of AJAX, IPK, Coke and Dunn, but not all 4. This reminds of the Randy Johnson were every hour there were new players named and the ultimate trade was different.

  15. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 8th, 2009 at 9:01 am

    Crawdaddy,

    There is no way Ajax goes for Granderson. That chip is reserved for Doc, and that’s it.

  16. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 8th, 2009 at 9:02 am

    EVERYONE! This is a terrible deal for the Yanks! CASH run away fast!!!!! I’d rather pay Damon 20 Mil than do this deal!!!!!

  17. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 9:02 am

    “Crawdaddy,

    There is no way Ajax goes for Granderson. That chip is reserved for Doc, and that’s it.”

    Halladay isn’t coming to the Yankees.

  18. vinny-b December 8th, 2009 at 9:03 am

    josh: thank you for the coverage.

    if you talk to Cashman, please tell him: GET CURTIS GRANDERSON

  19. Laura - Bring back Matsui in 2010! December 8th, 2009 at 9:03 am

    “You’re not getting Granderson without Jackson. I think Cashman is going to make the deal one way or another.”

    I’m not comfortable parting with Jackson to get Granderson. I’d give him up to get Halladay, but only if I get to keep Joba, Hughes and Montero. Sounds like I don’t want to give up anybody. It’s a good thing I’m not the Yankees GM. :)

  20. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 8th, 2009 at 9:03 am

    “Halladay isn’t coming to the Yankees.”

    I agree Crawdaddy. But we have to hold onto or chips for the big player, and Granderson isn’t it.

  21. squidward December 8th, 2009 at 9:03 am

    Best pitcher in that proposed 3 way deal is Scherzer IMO.

  22. Mike RI December 8th, 2009 at 9:03 am

    Halladay isn’t coming to the Yankees.

    neither is Granderson at that price.

  23. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 9:03 am

    “EVERYONE! This is a terrible deal for the Yanks! CASH run away fast!!!!! I’d rather pay Damon 20 Mil than do this deal!!!!!”

    Then you’re not very smart because Jackson at his best is nothing, but a right-handed version of Granderson without his power.

  24. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 9:05 am

    “neither is Granderson at that price.”

    Granderson has a much better chance of being traded to the Yankees than Halladay.

  25. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 8th, 2009 at 9:06 am

    crawdaddy

    “Then you’re not very smart because Jackson at his best is nothing, but a right-handed version of Granderson without his power.”

    And you’re not very smart if you’re going to give up four prospects for a .249 hitter.

  26. Just call me Mr. Clutch December 8th, 2009 at 9:07 am

    Snickelfritz. No Way! This guy has HOF written all over him. He has been the best player the Yankees have ever signed and is a lock to be a name more recognized than Babe Roof.

    That is the straw that broke this deal.

  27. vinny-b December 8th, 2009 at 9:07 am

    “This deal sucks for us because we are giving away too much. Remove Jackson and I’d do it”
    —————————————–

    remove Austin Jackson, and the above trade is no fairer than Austin Jackson for Jarod Washburn at the 2009 trade deadline.

    Austin Jackson, Ian Kennedy, and 1 of Phil Coke/Mike Dunn. Would prefer not to give up 2 LHP’s.

  28. James (One of the Many) December 8th, 2009 at 9:08 am

    granderson = career .210 hitter vs lefties, with a overall batting average trending the wrong way and will (does?) want to get paid like none of it’s going on. According to fangraphs his UZR has plummeted as well, so Ajax, IPK and coke? Don’t think so.

  29. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 9:11 am

    “And you’re not very smart if you’re going to give up four prospects for a .249 hitter.”

    I didn’t say I would pay 20M to Damon either.

    By the way, stop overvaluing our prospects. Some of them are good, but they’re not that good.

  30. vinny-b December 8th, 2009 at 9:12 am

    “And you’re not very smart if you’re going to give up four prospects for a .249 hitter”
    ————————————-

    yeah, because young all-star centerfielders who play excellent defense, hit 23 triples in a season, have 30 homerun power, and are model citizens off the field are a dime a dozen.

    curtis granderson is a platoon player – only on this blog.

  31. Patrick from CT December 8th, 2009 at 9:12 am

    I’d trade AJax for Granderson, but not 3 pitchers along with him.
    Granderson would be a good replacement for Damon.

  32. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 8th, 2009 at 9:12 am

    Snickelfritz is a legend in the pan-south atlantic American Euro league.

    Fuhgeddaboutit!

  34. L to the 2nd December 8th, 2009 at 9:15 am

    Ridiculous trade for a .250 hitter who can’t hit lefties.

    Kennedy, AJax, Dunn & Coke? Really guys?

    If you’re gonna burn prospects, burn ‘em on pitching (Halladay, King Felix). Not this guy.

    No wonder it’s being floated by AZ – guess who gets the best of that deal?

    Just say no Cash.

  35. 86w183 December 8th, 2009 at 9:15 am

    For those players plus Melky or Gardner they should get Granderson and Edwin Jackson. If that were possible I would do it. Might have to upgrade from Dunn to Melancon or McAllister to seal the deal.

    Then you sign Pettite and the Joba/Phil battle for # 5 starter sends the “loser” to the eighth inning role.

    Granderson stinks vs LHP, but the way the Yanks mash lefties teams don’t go out of their way to throw them. You hit Granderson second against RHP and seventh or eighth vs LHP. They guy is a helluva player.

  36. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 8th, 2009 at 9:16 am

    Crawdaddy,

    You are undervaluing our prospects. If we give up that much for one player, who’s not even the best at his position, we’re telling the league our best prospects are not so good.

  37. Just call me Mr. Clutch December 8th, 2009 at 9:16 am

    Snickelfritz is the next Buchholzkelly!

  38. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 9:16 am

    “I’d trade AJax for Granderson, but not 3 pitchers along with him.
    Granderson would be a good replacement for Damon.”

    Looks like Cashman wants to do the deal, but wants to tweak the components. I think Jackson has to be in the deal for the Tigers so it will be interesting to see what Cashman and Dombrowski do going forward.

  39. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 8th, 2009 at 9:17 am

    Curtis Granderson + Austin Jackson = Curtis Jackson.

  40. squidward December 8th, 2009 at 9:17 am

    “Kennedy, AJax, Dunn & Coke? Really guys?

    If you’re gonna burn prospects, burn ‘em on pitching (Halladay, King Felix). Not this guy.”

    This group of four doesn’t get you a sniff of either guy. And Coke isn’t a prospect folks. He’s a 27 year old LOOGY.

  41. Matt December 8th, 2009 at 9:18 am

    Chad – you don’t consider Phil Coke a proven big leaguer?

  42. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 9:18 am

  44. Chip December 8th, 2009 at 9:19 am

    curtis granderson is a platoon player – only on this blog.

    Actually he’s a platoon player because of the .200 batting average he has against Left Handed pitching.

  45. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 9:20 am

    “This group of four doesn’t get you a sniff of either guy. And Coke isn’t a prospect folks. He’s a 27 year old LOOGY.”

    And not a very good one at that with his homerun throwing butt.

    “You don’t even make any sense!”

    That’s cuz UR not paying attention!

  47. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 9:21 am

    “Actually he’s a platoon player because of the .200 batting average he has against Left Handed pitching.”

    If the Yankees make the trade they think he’s more than a platoon player and that they can improve his approach against lefty pitching.

  48. raymagnetic December 8th, 2009 at 9:21 am

    I actually think that the trade is good for Arizona and Detroit actually.

    I’m thinking Cashman didn’t like the prospects Arizona was trying to send back to the Yankees.

    Tigers replace Edwin Jackson and Granderson with AJax and Scherzer, plus they get two relievers for their troubles.

    Arizona would get two pitchers they could plug into their rotation immediately, and Jackson is likely as good as Scherzer or better.

    Yankees would get a CF, who although I do like him, his numbers have been trending in the wrong direction for the past three years.

    If you’re Cashman you have to be sure that Granderson can rebound. If not you just gave up your CF of the future and three pitchers for a guy that’s a platoon player.

  49. vinny-b December 8th, 2009 at 9:21 am

  50. Laura - Bring back Matsui in 2010! December 8th, 2009 at 9:22 am

    So if the Yanks get Granderson, are they backing away from Damon all together or do they plan to platoon Damon and Granderson in LF?

  51. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 9:22 am

    “That’s cuz UR not paying attention!”

    I’m done paying attention to the likes of you because you’re wasting my time.

  52. CountryClub December 8th, 2009 at 9:23 am

    The Yankees didnt offer up this trade. It was requested. Stop yelling and screaming about the Yanks giving up too much. If the Yanks are going to get Granderson, Austing Jackson is going back to Detroit. That’s a fact. Coke and Dunn being included is not a problem. And those three guys should get the deal done. Adding Kennedy would be a deal breaker for me unless the prospect (not mentioned by Chad but was part of the proposal) coming back from Ariz was almost ML ready.

    Also, Granderson is signed to a very team friendly contract. So you wouldnt have to give him any sort of extension.

  53. James (One of the Many) December 8th, 2009 at 9:23 am

    If we miss out on this steal I hope cash money can still get a warm lunch out of dealing away the lowly Ajax and washed up IPK.

  54. L to the 2nd December 8th, 2009 at 9:23 am

    I wasn’t implying those 4 would get you Halladay or Felix.

    Get real.

    But you can package them along with others (prospects or ML ready). Not burn them on essentially a platoon player (yes, he’s full time, but he can’t hit lefties).

    And yes, I know Coke isn’t a prospect. Thanks for the clarification.

  55. 86w183 December 8th, 2009 at 9:24 am

    In 2008 Granderson had a .739 OPS against LHP, so it’s not hopeless.

    I’d rather upgrade the package and include Edwin Jackson and leave Arizona out of it altogether. If that can be done than Austin Jackson/Ian Kennedy at the top of the package would be a legit price for a 29 year old CF and 26 year old starter.

    I assume Swish goes to LF and Melky RF.

  56. crawdaddy December 8th, 2009 at 9:24 am

    “If you’re Cashman you have to be sure that Granderson can rebound. If not you just gave up your CF of the future and three pitchers for a guy that’s a platoon player.”

    Ray,

    I agree with you there.

  57. jonathan c. December 8th, 2009 at 9:24 am

    Doesn’t Jackson’s ceiling = Granderson?

  58. CountryClub December 8th, 2009 at 9:25 am

    Also, from all indications, the Yanks and Tigers both declined the deal.

  59. roger(live fro Amsterdam) December 8th, 2009 at 9:25 am

    Granderson a platoon player…?yeah right

    Are those the same people who think Gardner is a better player then Melky..?pfff

  60. Brian NYY December 8th, 2009 at 9:25 am

    I wonder who the 2 Diamondback prospects are?

    Are they good enough to flip for Halladay? That’s the only way this deal makes sense. Otherwise, it is another winter meetings rumor that only gets us hyped up.

    If they are good enough to flip with Joba for Doc, then do it. I mean that’s a lot of prospects out the door but you get Granderson in CF and Doc on the staff. And you only give up Joba and Ajax? Imagine that?

  61. Boogie Down- Hot Stove December 8th, 2009 at 9:25 am

    Vinny-b

    What I’m trying to say, it is better to over-value your prospects, than just give them away. The Yankees have always hyped their prospects to try and jack up the price for them. But in this case I think our guys are worth more than Granderson in this trade scenario.

  62. L to the 2nd December 8th, 2009 at 9:26 am

    Thanks raymagnetic – voice of reason.

    And you communicated it better than I did :)

    “Felix is not (and I refuse to engage in any speculation about him. He’s 2 years away from FA and I expect he’ll be re-signed by the M’s)”

    Just saw this AM on MLBnetwork that Felix is talking to the M’s about a contract. He is reportedly looking for 6/100M. If the M’s won’t pony up for that, they deserve to lose him.

    Hopefully, now that Adrian has officially declined arb, the M’s can get busy in earnest.
    Although – according to his agent, there’s no rush…

  65. raymagnetic December 8th, 2009 at 9:27 am

    Is it really a smart idea to have Hughes and Joba battle for a rotation spot in spring training? I don’t think so.

    Don’t they say that you should never trust numbers in March and September? They’re going to battle for a rotation spot when they really should just be getting ready for the season and working on building up arm strength? Just doesn’t make sense at all.

    I also think it’s a very bad idea to stick either Hughes or Chamberlain in the pen. If that’s the plan the Yankees might as well trade one of them.

    The Yankees worked hard getting Chamberlain’s innings up last year so that he could be a starter with no limitations. Doesn’t make sense to stick him in the pen now without seeing if your hard work last year pays off.

    Hughes, if you put him in the pen now, when is he ever not going to have an innings limit? Put him back in the pen and you’ve burned a golden arm in my opinion.

  66. Money Mike December 8th, 2009 at 9:28 am

    Chad,
    Who is the best player available in the rule 5 draft? Who do you see that Yanks taking (although I would assume it would be the same person)? This could become one of those trades that people discount now but turns out to be another steal like swisher was last year.

  67. CountryClub December 8th, 2009 at 9:34 am

    Remember, whoever the Yanks take in the Rule 5 draft is a player that has to stay on their 25 man roster all year. If not, they lose the player back to the original team for 25k.

    because of that, my guess is it will be someone they think can stick in their pen.

  68. squidward December 8th, 2009 at 9:35 am

    “I’d rather upgrade the package and include Edwin Jackson and leave Arizona out of it altogether. If that can be done than Austin Jackson/Ian Kennedy at the top of the package would be a legit price for a 29 year old CF and 26 year old starter”

    Only reason for getting Arizona in the deal is because they like Scherzer more than IPK, which I can understand and agree with.

    Just read Schlereth (sp?) was one of the D’back prospects involved.

  69. Fran (the original) and OPPC member December 8th, 2009 at 9:36 am

    So if the Yanks get Granderson, are they backing away from Damon all together or do they plan to platoon Damon and Granderson in LF?
    ******************************
    I was thinking that if the Yanks get Granderson he becomes the everyday LF and they don’t resign Damon.

  70. squidward December 8th, 2009 at 9:40 am

    “Who is the best player available in the rule 5 draft?”

    Pirates pick 2nd. In a chat I read on Baseballprospectus.com, a Pirate fan asked who’d they be looking at at #2 and Kevin Whelan’s name came up. That tells me there isn’t much there. Rule 5 was really watered down with that last CBA.

    “Doesn’t Jackson’s ceiling = Granderson?”

    in Austin Jackson’s girlfriend’s dreams it does. (and i’m a action jackson fan)

    Granderson had a couple years where he looked like a machine. 290 average. 22 tiples. 30 HR’s. I don’t see this level of potential in Austin Jackson.

    at this point, Austin Jackson resembles Roberto Kelley more then Curtis Granderson. A defense player first, who may develop a major league bat and then again may not. For the record, i don’t want to give up Austin Jackson in any deal unless we have a future CF’er in place. In this case, Granderson would be that centerfielder.

  82. matt December 8th, 2009 at 9:47 am

    This is not a trade that makes sense for the yankees. Your trading one of your few blue chip pieces for a guy who is 30 with declining #’s and is potentially a platoon hitter.

    Hold onto or a-jax. The only two guys I deal him for is potentially Halladay or Carl Crawford

  83. vinny-b December 8th, 2009 at 9:48 am

    “SI’s Heyman says that the Yankees said no to the deal.They wanted Kennedy,Dunn,Coke,Jackson.Cashman would lose his job if he were that stupid!”
    ——————————————-

    Austin Jackson, Ian Kennedy, and 1 of Dunn/Coke is completely fair.

  84. Sports Geek December 8th, 2009 at 9:50 am

    To me, that’s a really lousy trade… giving up 4 players to get one. I think we’d be much better off just to keep Damon, and keep those prospects growing. Probably Kennedy and Jackson would make their way to the bigs this year anyway, and Coke is already there.

    NOT a good trade!! WAIT, let me say that a different way, “IT’s a LOUSY TRADE!!”

  85. Patrick the Prospect Hugger December 8th, 2009 at 9:52 am

    I am going to have to disagree 100% with your analysis Chad. Arizona is the clear loser in that proposed trade. Max Scherzer is likely to be the best player going forward and they would be getting Ian Kennedy (4-5 starter at best) and Edwin Jackson who is headed for a big fall next season. Look at his peripherals, his performance in the first half was a mirage.

  86. Patrick the Prospect Hugger December 8th, 2009 at 9:53 am

    Dude Kennedy, Jackson, Dunn, Coke is a freaking steal for Curtis Granderson and 2 prospects. A STEAL

  87. bru December 8th, 2009 at 9:53 am

    crawdaddy

    every player is a prospect at one time

    don’t take this the wrong way but pujols was one also

    i talk to my scouts & see what ajax is & what he could be

    i trade him but not with kennedy,coke & dunn

    kennedy,ajax
    & ???? maybe

    they get ajax wich i believe is the centerpiece & a number one drafted pitcher or first rounder in kennedy??

    we can sign damon or wait & keep all our prospects

    i can see trading our prospects for pitching

  88. tim December 8th, 2009 at 9:54 am

    could easily just be a leak job by the Yankees to get Damon a little worried…smoke and mirrors!

  89. mike December 8th, 2009 at 9:55 am

    Throw in Edwin Jackson and Justin Upton and now we have something to build on. As it stands its silly

  90. Chip December 8th, 2009 at 9:59 am

    IF the proposed Arizona, Detroit, NYY trade does have Daniel Schlereth coming back to NY along with Granderson I would probably do it.

    Schlereth is going to be a hard throwing LH starting pitcher, which trumps anything that Kennedy might be. For the short term he can easily replace Coke in the pen. I still don’t like Granderson’s splits but in regard to Austin Jackson – well for every Jay Buhner there are two Ruben Rivera’s and Ricky Ledee’s.

    Really the only high quality prospect the Yankees are giving up is Jackson. Kennedy is redundant in this organization at this time. Dunn walks far too many people at this stage, and Coke is what Coke is – which isn’t bad, but like I said, in the short term Shlereth would be an apt replacement for him in the pen.

    I can’t see Arizona though giving up both Scherzer and Schlereth.

    on a separate note – I have another suggestion for LF.

    Switch Hitter. Career .300 hitter with a .340 OBP – no power at all but tremendous speed. Can play both CF and LF. Has been on winning teams. Has 2 years and $18 mil left on his contract and plays for a team that wants to move him to save payroll. Probably wouldn’t cost too much in terms of prospects because he’s currently the 4th outfielder on the team.

    I’m thinking Gardner, Coke, and maybe a guy like Corban Joseph or Carmen Angelini.

    The guy in question: Juan Pierre

  91. Laura - Bring back Matsui in 2010! December 8th, 2009 at 10:00 am

    “Some scuttlebut that the pursuit of Granderson is, in part, to create some leverage for the Yankees in their dealings with Damon.”

    Makes sense. I think we’ll get the deal done with Damon as long as he lets go of this pipe dream of a 4 year deal.

  92. Laura - Bring back Matsui in 2010! December 8th, 2009 at 10:02 am

    “The guy in question: Juan Pierre”

    I saw him when he played for the Cubs. Pass.

  93. Patrick the Prospect Hugger December 8th, 2009 at 10:02 am

    Juan Pierre is a horrible horrible player. One of the most overrated in the game.

  94. blake December 8th, 2009 at 10:06 am

    Chip, I agree that if sclereth was one of the guys them his ceiling is higher than coke or probably Kennedy as well (plus they would talk about him all the time on espn cause of his dad)..if you’re getting him and granderson then that’s sounds a lot better

    juan Pierre, no thanks

  95. Betsy December 8th, 2009 at 10:09 am

    I am not giving up on Doc to the Yanks – there’s no reason to. Therefore, AJax has to stay. I don’t care one bit about Dunn and Coke…..Kennedy is probably future trade bait, but I would save him for another deal.

    Fair enough to all those who say no to Pierre

    Just read the blog about who the Yankees might take with the first pick in the Rule V draft – Can’t say I know anything about Tosoni – the OF they speculate will be the guy, but if he’s as good a prospect as they say I could see this being a steal for the Yankees, giving up Bruney for an everyday OF who can play all three spots and hit for power with speed.

  100. Just call me Mr. Clutch December 8th, 2009 at 10:12 am

    Just bring Snickelfritz up and say no to the trade.

    Now its being reported that the Yankees balked at the price of this trade. I tend to agree that its too much from the Yankees side for a CF who has talent but big questions as well.

  101. Chip December 8th, 2009 at 10:12 am

    Heyman is tweeting that the Granderson deal is dead. Arizona wouldn’t give up Schlereth and Scherzer in the deal – that makes sense to me. It would be like asking the Yankees for Joba and Hughes.

    Of course, just because a deal is dead at 10 doesn’t mean it won’t be alive and well by 11.

  102. Betsy December 8th, 2009 at 10:13 am

    Ray, I have been saying that for weeks – I detest the idea of a competition. Also, Phil should be working on his pitches, not worrying about “winning” ST (I guess the same can be said for Joba, too). Phil will never be a starter if he’s relegated to the pen…at least, not with the Yankees. I agree, they may as well trade him.

  103. blake December 8th, 2009 at 10:14 am

    Betsy, keep the faith. Cashman knows what a two headed monster the rotation would be with CC and Halladay. If there’s any way it can happen then cash will get it done. I don’t think he will part with Hughes or montero but the Yankees can still make a strong offer without those two.

  104. Mike RI December 8th, 2009 at 10:14 am

    Are you people crazy? Curtis Granderson and two mid-level prospects for Austin Jackson, Ian Kennedy, Coke and Dunn is a great deal for the Yankees.

    too much.

  105. DaSaint007 December 8th, 2009 at 10:14 am

    I’d trade directly with Detroit, and would offer Austin Jackson, McAllister, and Coke for Granderson. We get a premier CF/LF, while they get a young, agile, CF replacement, a near-MLB ready pitcher, and a proven MLB lefty-reliever. All affordable.

  106. Betsy December 8th, 2009 at 10:16 am

    It doesn’t matter if that deal is dead – there is nothing to stop the Yankees and Tigers from making a deal on their own.

    I still say hold onto AJax for now…..

  107. Betsy December 8th, 2009 at 10:17 am

    Blake, I’m saying that I can’t agree with Craw that Doc is definitely not coming. Once the Yankees decided to bid for him, they knew this was going to be a long, drawn out affair. Patience is required. We have no idea what the Jays will or will not accept…..

  108. Betsy December 8th, 2009 at 10:18 am

    No way am I giving up Jackson and McAllister for Granderson…..In fact, I’m not inclined to make any deal for Granderson at this point.

  109. Rich in NJ December 8th, 2009 at 10:18 am

    That would have been an extreme overpay for the Granderson of the last two seasons.

  110. DaSaint007 December 8th, 2009 at 10:19 am

    And at this point I stop pursuing Halladay until the options for Toronto become 2 mid-level prospects. boston doesn’t have the assets to do the deal, as they need them to fill positional problems. Phillies can’t afford the extension when they have the same situation with Lee. Angels don’t train in Florida, if that really matters at all. And the Mets are cheap.

    Default, Yankees, which allows them to trade mid-level prospects. No Joba, no Hughs, no Kennedy, no Montero, no Melancon (they don’t need a reliever). Pick any 2 other names and the deal is done.

  111. blake December 8th, 2009 at 10:20 am

    I think people devalue coke a little. He was pretty darn good at times last year and should only get better.

  112. roger(live fro Amsterdam) December 8th, 2009 at 10:21 am

    I would do the deal if it was a-jax,kennedy and coke

    You don’t want you’re 2 lefty relievers go so I would stick to Dunn

  113. Just call me Mr. Clutch December 8th, 2009 at 10:21 am

    No love for Snickelfritz. What a shame. The guy plays his heart out.

  114. Chip December 8th, 2009 at 10:24 am

    Ray -

    Here’s my logic on Pierre – not that it really matters:

    1. He’s a switch hitter
    2. He doesn’t strike out
    3. He gets on base
    4. He can run a ton (which Girardi wants to do even more)
    5. He plays the kind of small ball that Girardi wants
    6. His salary (9 mil/year for 2 years) fits in exactly with what the Yankees wanted to pay Damon
    7. He can play the field very well

    Again, not that it matters – but figured I would throw his name out there.

  116. GreenBeret7 December 8th, 2009 at 10:24 am

    Good morning from the Tampa VA Hospital (Bay Pines).

    According to Heyman (so you can take it for what it’s worth), the deal was:

    ‘Zona gets: Edwin Jackson, Ian Kennedy

    Detroit gets: Max Scherzer, Phil Coke, Mike Dunn, Austin Jackson and Daniel Schlereth plus one minor leaguer from ‘Zona.

    Yankees get: Curtis Granderson.

    If that’s the deal, that would explain why the Yanks told them to shove it.

  117. blake December 8th, 2009 at 10:24 am

    the jays are not going to trade Roy to the Yankees or red sox for mid level prospects. If they are going to do thay it’ll be to an NL team or the angels. The Yankees or sox will have to pay more than other teams would.

  118. Rich in NJ December 8th, 2009 at 10:24 am

    They need to save AJack/IPK for any Halladay deal.

  119. Mike RI December 8th, 2009 at 10:25 am

    I agree Blake.

    Coke was a nice suprise last season. He’s still young and he’s now battled tested. ( I know he struggled at the end of last season and into the playoffs ). But he’ll learn.

    I like having Coke and Marte as our lefties.

    We lost Bruney and if we lose Coke. our bullpen takes a little hit.

    From Heyman:

    “Anthopoulos is doing a nice job keeping a lid on Halladay trade talks. He is the anti-Towers.”

    Nothing on Towers so far this week. I can take him or leave him. Not sure he adds as much as many believe. Didn’t draft particularly well and though famous for identifying solid pitching, he was the guy who Rule 5′d Joakim Soria. Nothing wrong with another set of eyes, but I don’t see him having a significant impact here or anywhere else.

  127. Patrick the Prospect Hugger December 8th, 2009 at 10:30 am

    Actually Heyman said the Yanks would be getting 2 prospects from Arizona as well.

    Even if they were 2 mid-level prospects it’s a great deal for the Yanks.

  128. Chip December 8th, 2009 at 10:31 am

    Patrick: don’t bother trying to convince them, it is in vai The Bill Jame’s deciples do not deem Curtis Granderson as a valuable player.

    I hate Bill James – the reason I’m down on Granderson is that I’m not entirely sure where he fits in the lineup. He strikes out too much to bat leadoff or 2nd. You can bat him 5th I suppose.

    In addition he isn’t just bad against left handed pitching, he’s awful. He struggles to hit .200 against southpaws which means that you either platoon him or live with a hole in your lineup anytime you face a left handed pitcher.

  129. raymagnetic December 8th, 2009 at 10:32 am

    “Patrick: don’t bother trying to convince them, it is in vain. The Bill Jame’s deciples do not deem Curtis Granderson as a valuable player.”

    Funny you should say that. Your boy Patrick is a Bill James sabermetric disciple.

    As I said earlier however, if you believe that Granderson will rebound it’s a good gamble. If you don’t believe he’ll rebound and he can’t hit lefthanded pitching then it’s a bad trade.

  130. Tripps78 December 8th, 2009 at 10:33 am

    The Yankees should have rejected the deal but don’t sleep on Granderson. You take away a player (Jackson) or swap some in the package and it is not bad trade. Granderson is a big player. Playoff experience, young, big power, speed, decent defense. He’s got all around skills. He strikes out too much but he’s an all-star player.

  131. Yankee U December 8th, 2009 at 10:33 am

    Vinny-b
    “Granderson had a couple years where he looked like a machine. 290 average. 22 tiples. 30 HR’s. I don’t see this level of potential in Austin Jackson.”

    Actually he has produced those stats once and they were not on the same year.

    As for potential at age 22 Jackson’s stats in were:
    67 runs 4 HRs 65 RBI .300 Avg .354 OBP

    Granderson at age 22
    71 Runs 11 Hrs 55 RBI .286 Avg .365 OBP

    Jackson did this in AAA Granderson was still in Advanced A.

  132. SJ44 December 8th, 2009 at 10:33 am

    Losing Brian Bruney isn’t taking a hit to the bullpen.

    Some of you have to stop overvaluing Yankee prospects.

    They all aren’t going to be Derek Jeter.

    This team is known for acquiring known commodities. Usually, on their own terms because Cashman is patient enough to wait it out.

    Last year, the same people who think Mike Dunn and/or Austin Jackson are the next stars on the team complained for giving up Jeff Marquez for Nick Swisher.

    The Yankees know their own system better than anybody.

    They aren’t going to give guys away. Nor, are they going to keep every prospect and turn the team into the Pirates.

  133. blake December 8th, 2009 at 10:34 am

    if this deal for granderson happens them I’m thinking the yanks move away from Damon and more toward matsui. Matsui would be more likely to take a short term deal and would fill the need of a #5 hitter. Although as most of you know I’m for signing Holliday

  134. Phil December 8th, 2009 at 10:34 am

    The Yanks pulled out of the deal cause they weren’t getting enough for what they were giving up. Something else less complicated could still be worked out. We’ll see.

  135. raymagnetic December 8th, 2009 at 10:34 am

    Chip,

    I hear your arguments about Juan Pierre but truth be told he’s just not a good player.

  137. Betsy December 8th, 2009 at 10:35 am

    Yankees officials left three-way trade talks that would have netted them Curtis Granderson saying they were unsure that negotiations will ever heat up again. But quite frankly I think that is just downplaying the matter. It seems pretty clear that they want Granderson and, generally, what the Yankees want they ultimately find a way to get.

    Foxsports.com had the initial report and I heard the players the report had leaving the Yankees and going to either Detroit or Arizona – Austin Jackson, Ian Kennedy, Michael Dunn and Phil Coke – were basically right. The Yanks would receive back Granderson and perhaps one or two prospects.

    I think this is a package with which the Yankees should be able to part. Jackson is the toughest player to move from the group, since the Yankees have kept him out of packages for years. Washington wanted him for Alfonso Soriano at the 2006 July trade deadline and Seattle wanted him for Jarrod Washburn at this past deadline. The Yanks think he is going to be a really strong player, but scouts from other teams wonder about his high strikeouts and limited power. You lose him as the center fielder of the future, but you get Granderson in his prime for three years at a reasonable $25.75 million.

    Kennedy is a back-end starter. To me Coke is this generation’s Jim Leyritz: A talented guy who might not max out because he has trouble with his conditioning and knowing his place in a clubhouse. Dunn, a convert from position player to reliever, is a wild card. He has a big arm with a chance to turn into a late-inning factor. But, right now, he does not have much idea where the ball is going.

    3. Granderson has his flaws, as well. He strikes out a bunch and is terrible against lefty pitching. But it is possible to improve at those things. However, even if he doesn’t, he is still an above-average producer who could possibly give more as a Yankee.

    He busted out with a career-high 30 homers last year. But he hit just 10 in a tough home power park in Detroit. At Yankee Stadium, I think it is possible that Granderson’s power could climb toward 40 homers.

    Plus, I think the Yankees really want to be better on defense in the outfield, and I do not think it is inconceivable that they trade for Granderson and play him in left and sign free agent Mike Cameron for center. That would be adding 250-plus strikeouts to the team. But they would provide excellent defense plus both are known as tremendous clubhouse assets.

    Making a comparison on guys minor league stats, and trying to predict major league success, is ridiculous.

    These players aren’t computers. All of them advance at different paces.

    Taking stats, and not taking anything else in consideration (ballparks, playing time, developmental time) and trying to draw conclusions, defies logic.

    If Austin Jackson has as successful career as Curtis Granderson has had as of right now, he will be a very successful ML player.

    The problem is, NOBODY can predict that so, its ridiculous to even try.

    Da Saint, why should the Yankees stop pursuing Doc? They haven’t even spoken to Anthopolous seriously yet. Cash and Hal knew what they were getting into when they decided to try and get Doc – it’s going to be a drawn out affair requring some serious negotiations. It’s not going to be just ” this is what we want and if you don’t want to give it up, don’t bother calling back”. If the Jays pull that, they won’t trade Doc at all.

    Others are valuable as viable, future frontline players.

    They all have value at different levels.

    It gets foolish for some to believe ALL of them are future stars. They aren’t.

    (from the previous thread)

    Just a drive by to say hope everyone is doing well and still revelling in our beautiful number 27. I know I am! It has helped to keep me warm during the off season.

    A friend just emailed me the info on the potential Granderson deal. I am sure this has been discussed but I thought I would add my two cents. I would absolutely love to have Granderson. Good riddance to Kennedy; Phil Coke unfortunately developed a little bit of an attitude there and I think that was his undoing; I feel a little bad for Edwin Jackson only because he played his heart out for the Yankees – just a little bit of a sympathy thing there. Austin Jackson is the only one in there that hurts.

    Well anyway, I thought I would check in with that blockbuster opinion! Granderson, to me, would be an awesome addition.

    That said, for someone like me who typically lets the Yankee do their thing and is good with whatever they do in the end, this off season has been particularly fulfilling! Nothing like letting it all unfold after a world series win. Hope the holiday season is good to all of you hotstovers!

    I wouldn’t say I’m a Bill James disciple. My views on baseball are more in line with a guy like Keith Law.

    The bottom line is this, there is a very very slight chance that Austin Jackson will ever be as good as Curtis Granderson and even if he is it will probably be years in the future. Ian Kennedy is nothing more than a 4 or 5 starter. Mike Dunn and Phil Coke are decent pitchers but really nothing special.

    Giving up those 4 guys for 2 prospects plus Curtis Granderson would be a steal for the Yanks.

But, they only played 54 games against lefty starters last year. You can rest him against the real difficult lefties and let him struggle through vs the rest. It wouldnt be the end of the world.

  151. Phil December 8th, 2009 at 10:42 am

    Yanks were only getting back Granderson in the 3 way yesterday, that’s why they backed out. We’ll see what happens today.

  152. Rich in NJ December 8th, 2009 at 10:42 am

    Actually Heyman said the Yanks would be getting 2 prospects from Arizona as well.

    Even if they were 2 mid-level prospects it’s a great deal for the Yanks.

    ————————————————————

    Then he’s either changed his mind in the last hour or, as usual, he doesn’t have a clue as to what he’s talking about.

    “8:29am: SI’s Jon Heyman tweets that this one “looks very unlikely.” In his scenario Heyman had Daniel Schlereth, Scherzer, and more going to Detroit. He adds that the Yankees are saying no to the deal, which would’ve cost them the four prospects named below. Similarly, Morosi now finds the chances of this one to be “not good” because the Yankees balked at the price.”

  154. Betsy December 8th, 2009 at 10:43 am

    Blake, you could say that about most of the players in the game. Coke is just not that good – that said, I doubt he was the reason the deal fell apart.

    Cash doesn’t have to make a deal now. I’d rather he not make a deal rather than make a bad deal, even if it’s for a player he likes.

    According to Fox Sports, a major league source confirmed the Rays have contacted Toronto officials about Halladay. The source suggested that Tampa Bay might be willing to offer speedy outfielder B.J. Upton and pitching prospect Wade Davis in exchange for Toronto’s 32-year old star.

  156. Phil December 8th, 2009 at 10:44 am

    The Rays rumor is false.

    The DBacks and Tigers would have to come up with more for the Yanks if they want to make that deal.

  157. SJ44 December 8th, 2009 at 10:45 am

    The chances Austin Jackson becomes Curtis Granderson is slim because they are different types of players.

    I don’t need a computer program to figure that out. You can do that by seeing each guy play.

    Granderson is more of a slasher type of hitter who has developed a bit of a power stroke. He has holes in his swing Kevin Long can fix. If he can close Arod’s holes, he can certainly close Granderson’s.

    Jackson is more of a free swinger/athlete who is still developing as a baseball player.

    Granderson has better baseball instincts than Jackson. As a matter of fact, they are much better, particularly on the basepaths.

    Jackson has a better arm, but covers much less ground in the OF, than Granderson.

    If the Yankees felt Austin Jackson was going to be the next Curtis Granderson, they wouldn’t have offered him in the trade.

    If you are going to use stats to compare players, you have to use them properly. Comparing 22 year olds at different stages of development incorrectly is not the proper way to use stats or project future player success.

  158. blake December 8th, 2009 at 10:45 am

    Betsy, yes I believe the jays would trade halladay within the division but I also believe that it will require better prospects for them to do it. At least it would for me, I would want him out of the division if at all possible if I’m them. They are going to say they’ll trade him to anyone because the more percieved bidders, the higher the price

  159. Rich in NJ December 8th, 2009 at 10:46 am

    “The chances Austin Jackson becomes Curtis Granderson is slim because they are different types of players”

    Right, but they aren’t being traded for even up.

  160. Chip December 8th, 2009 at 10:47 am

    Here’s the thing with Austin Jackson that’s worrisome:

    He strikes out a ton (123 vs. 40 walks) and still managed to hit .300 – which means he had a very high batting average on balls in play – a stat that could be as much about luck as anything else. It’s entirely possible that playing in a league where there is better fielding he will hit the same .240 that Granderson did, but without the power (4 HR last season)

    Now that said, it’s also possible he learns the strikezone a little more and the power comes and he becomes Torri Hunter. That’s the risk you take when you deal a prospect.

    I will say this, with the Yankees quietly bringing in lots of high ceiling young OF’s (the Dominican player a week ago, Heathcott in the draft, Edgar Gonzalez last year, possibly Tosoni in the Rule V draft) and the possibility that Montero winds up in LF, it’s possible that the Yankees are trying to find someone who could supplant Jackson if they decide to move him.

  161. Rich in NJ December 8th, 2009 at 10:48 am

    blake

    So you think that Anthopoulos wants to make as bad a deal as Bill Smith did with Santana?

  162. blake December 8th, 2009 at 10:48 am

    Betsy, I didn’t say that Coke was the next mariano Rivera. I said he was a little undervalued by people on this board. He’s got good stuff and has been given a role that he could become very good at.

  163. SJ44 December 8th, 2009 at 10:48 am

    Paul O’Neill had the same rap (can’t hit lefties) when he came to NY. With better instruction, he changed his approach and figured it out.

    The Tigers fired their hitting coach in the off-season in large part because guys weren’t getting better.

    Granderson will hit better under guys like Long or Rudy Jaramillo (who is now with the Cubs) because they will change his approach to lefties.

    He certainly has the skill. Just needs to change his approach.

    Patrick,

    I agree with you re: Granderson trade.

    I heard the Yankees pulled back because they wanted to get more than just Granderson in return. That’s why they engaged the D’backs in the talks.

  164. Rich in NJ December 8th, 2009 at 10:50 am

    Granderson’s trendlines concern me:

    OPS+, UZR/150

    2007: 135, 12.9
    2008: 123, -9.4
    2009: 100, 1.6

    As do his disparate splits:

    2007-09

    v. L: .202/.261/.309/.570
    v. R: .301/.378/.562/.940

  165. Betsy December 8th, 2009 at 10:52 am

    SJ, we don’t know who offered what, that’s the thing. Maybe it was the Tigers /Diamondbacks who proposed Austin Jackson. Before the rumor of the 3 way deal was announced, there were tweets that the Yankees balked at giving up Jackson for Granderson. SJ, do you think there is a possibility that Cash is holding Jackson out of any deal because Toronto likes him and he could go in a Halladay deal? In any case, clearly the Yankees like Ajax.

    Too many rumors flying to know what’s accurate and what’s not. Some sources say the D-Backs pulled out, some say the Yankees……we just don’t know anything.

    Blake, we’ll see…..this isn’t going to be resolved anytime soon.

  167. Phil December 8th, 2009 at 10:52 am

    Long’s had pretty good luck getting the Yankee lefties to hang in there against lefty pitching.

  168. Chip December 8th, 2009 at 10:53 am

    As for the other parts going in that potential Granderson deal:

    I have no love for Ian Kennedy – as I said, I think with all the right handed starters in the organization he’s redundant. He profiles as a back of the rotation starter and the Yankees have a lot of guys who profile that way.

    Phil Coke gives up a ton of HR to left handed hitters; if the Yankees trust Damaso Marte they can move Coke. They also have a couple of LH relief guys coming along too.

    Mike Dunn walks too many guys to be counted on as a relief pitcher.

    I detailed my qualms with Jackson above.

    Overall – if the prospects the Yankees are getting back are projectable and if they have decided that they have enough young talent in the OF to replace Jackson I would take the deal. One thing I would do though is immediately move Jesus Montero to LF and see if he can play the position.

  169. blake December 8th, 2009 at 10:53 am

    Rich, I think he isn’t going to accept that kind of deal from the Yankees which is what some of you think is going to happen.

    A point you all seem to miss about the Santana deal and the lee deal is that both were shipped to the NL for those players. Neither would have done it in their division.

  170. Rich in NJ December 8th, 2009 at 10:53 am

    “Paul O’Neill had the same rap (can’t hit lefties) when he came to NY. With better instruction, he changed his approach and figured it out.”

    There is as much reason to believe that O’Neill’s ability to improve his R/L splits make him an outlier.

  171. GreenBeret7 December 8th, 2009 at 10:54 am

    Montero isn’t going to play left field in Yankee Stadium. He doesn’t have the speed. He might fill in in right field on occassion. He could even play left field in boston if there was a very fast center fielder.

  172. Rich in NJ December 8th, 2009 at 10:55 am

    “A point you all seem to miss about the Santana deal and the lee deal is that both were shipped to the NL for those players. Neither would have done it in their division.”

    Do we know that, blake. Maybe the deal that they got for Lee was their best offer?

    Maybe the RS and the Yankees were never really interested in Santana?

  173. Rich in NJ December 8th, 2009 at 10:56 am

    Long may be able to do that, but it’s still a projection that should lower the price paid.

  174. Betsy December 8th, 2009 at 10:56 am

  175. Phil December 8th, 2009 at 10:56 am

  178. blake December 8th, 2009 at 10:58 am

    Rich, you find me a deal like this that has happened within the division for midlevel prospects. The vast majority have sent the star to the other league.

    Schilling to red sox
    Santana to mets
    Lee to phillies
    Sabathia to brewers
    Beckett to red sox
    Etc etc. All were sent to the opposite league

  179. Noreaster December 8th, 2009 at 10:58 am

    It’s great to have some baseball to think about!

    What have we learned so far:
    1) The Yankees are really interested in Granderson and it my affect the Damon negotiations.
    2) Andy will be back with a higher base (and last year’s base was so low because the Yankees were at/near their cap when they signed Andy). so…
    3) The Yankees really do have a ‘soft’ cap.

    What is interesting to me that no one is talking about:
    1) I love the Bruney trade. First pick in the rule 5 draft might be worth something. Does anybody think we will make the pick (and then have to keep that person on the roster all year) or trade the pick?
    2) What are the Sox up to? Are they going to lay back till next year when Lowell, Ortiz, Beckett come off the books or try to do something big this year?

  181. SJ44 December 8th, 2009 at 10:59 am

    Betsy,

    I think Cashman knows exactly who he can get and what he has to give up to get him. He has been talking regularly with the Tigers and Jays since the season ended.

    Some teams see Austin Jackson differently than others. Some see him as a future star. Others see him as a good, but not great, major league player. I know some teams that don’t think he’s that good.

    Every team sees and evaluates players differently. For example, I know of a lot teams that never saw Lars Anderson as a future star. Yet, last off-season, all we heard was how the “future first baseman of the Red Sox”, was going to be in AA in 2009″. Now, the same people who touted the kid say he isn’t up to the hype.

    What we don’t know is how the Tigers and Jays view Austin Jackson.

    I had heard a few weeks ago the Tigers really like Jackson and the Jays are less enamored with him.

    If that’s true, then holding Jackson out of any Granderson deal makes little sense since the Jays aren’t seeing him as a key piece to a Halladay trade.

  182. Patrick the Prospect Hugger December 8th, 2009 at 11:00 am

  184. Chip December 8th, 2009 at 11:01 am

    Maybe the RS and the Yankees were never really interested in Santana?

    I think more than getting Johan they were concerned with making sure that if they didn’t get Johan that he didn’t go cheaply to the other team.

    Neither team really cared that the Mets got him – for all his positives Johan has a few flaws that make him a scary investment (as we’ve seen here in NY) but I just think they wanted to keep the other guy honest. If the Yankees were going to get him Boston was going to stick around long enough to make sure it cost them Hughes and if the Sox were going to get him the Yankees wanted to make sure Lester ended up in Minny.

    My point with the minor league stats is that based on their production at that point in their careers you can not say that Jackson has no chance to be as good as Granderson.

    As far as instincts go the Yankees did pretty well with Bernie williams in center (No.I’m not comaparing Jackson to Williams) and he had no baseball instincts.

    I would love to see the Yanks somehow turn Ajax into Granderson.

    However, I’d like Granderson only if the Yanks got another outfielder which would allow them to sit Granderson against most lefties.

    Mike Cameron is a natural fit with Granderson. He destroys lefties. Granderson destroys righties. And Cameron is OK against lefties.

    So, against righties you have Granderson, Cameron and Swisher. Against lefties you have Melky, Cameron and Swisher.

    Outstanding OF defense, and together Granderson and Cameron will probably cost less than $15MM. That’s clearly worth giving up AJax and some other spare parts.

    I think the bottom line is that Anthopolus needs to decide what’s in the best interests of his team: Dealing Halladay for less than a sure win or keeping him for the season and taking your chance with the draft picks instead.

    SJ, I thought I read from Heyman that the Jays like Jackson…eh, there’s so much info and misinformation flying around that who knows what to believe?

    I completely agree that it’s all about how the Jays/Tigers feel about players, not what we think they ought to feel or what we feel ourselves. Who’s to say the Jays don’t like other players in our system? Who’s to say they don’t love Melancon or Romine (just using two examples – I could have picked any players out)? Maybe we think to ourselves that the Jays would never do such and such….but how do we know that? Conversely, we could love players that they don’t like….so that even if we think they are stupid for not doing a deal, it doesn’t mean they don’t have a reasoning behind it.

    Did you read Sherman’s piece on Cash/Anthopolous yesterday? It doesn’t necessarily mean a trade will be done, but I find it interesting that they have a good working relationship. What does that mean when a foundation is being laid? Do GMs just try to first get together and schmooze a bit? Do they talk about generalities (in this case, what the Jays are trying to do, the kinds of players they are looking for, etc…)? There has to be a lot more to a trade than just one GM calling up another and proposing a deal…..Sherman pointed out that oftentimes, GMs trade with certain GMs more than others and some GMs never trade with each other. Is that based on how well they get along personally?

  212. Lauren December 8th, 2009 at 11:18 am

    Granderson has incredible charisma. He could easily be a future broadcaster. The NYC press will absolutely love him.

  213. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes December 8th, 2009 at 11:19 am

    Thank god that trade is dead.

    The Yankees are getting raked over the coals. I read that they’d receive a couple prospects from Arizona or something like that on MLBTR, but still.

    I won’t overvalue our prospects, but if we’re giving up Jackson, Coke, IPK, and Dunn, we better be getting more than Granderson in return.

    Why trade Jackson for a guy like Granderson when we can wait a year, re-sign Damon for 2 years and theoretically have Jackson in CF in 2011 full time. Even if he doesn’t pan out to be as good as Granderson, he is still much cheaper, apparently has a lot of upside, and very well could be better (optimistic me) in 5 years.

    Chip,

    “The Yankees made a trade with the Jays for David Cone.

    Roger Clemens too.”

    I’ve written this several times over the past 3 weeks on this blog. We have had some considerably GREAT luck with the pitchers we’ve acquired from Toronto. Coney and Rocket helped bring rings.

    I know people might not be too fond of the Rocket these days…I certainly have my issues with him, but I still believe he was THAT good. Just wouldn’t have been that good for as long w/o the PEDs.

I remember you talking in the past about some health issues and I would like to add my good wishes and prayers for you that whatever is going on, everything goes well and you are in the pink very soon.

    He does not expect the Sox to trade Westmoreland, Kelly, or Buchholz.

    However, the Red Sox can make some significant moves…

    Teams like Casey Kotchman; Josh Reddick has value; Manny Delcarmen has a big arm

    Casey Krotchman is a loser, and was gotten by the Sox for nothing.
    Reddick is the equivalent of a Publix grocery bagger, with less talent.
    Manny was left off the postseason roster, and makes Kyle Farnsworth look consistent.

    This, from Pete Abe, the guy who insulted bloggers here that suggested using IPK to trade for somebody. He shot down any and most of our prospects as trade bait.

    But Josh Reddick. Josh Reddick. I repeat again, Josh Reddick.

    Assuming this is correct, there are other players to be had. The bottom line is, anything the yanks get is better than if they just let Bruney walk. Hopefully they can find someone that sticks all year. It’s an enormous crap shoot. But it was a gret trade for Cash. When do the yanks get the 1st pick in any draft?

    I know Cashman likes pitching (who doesn’t) but I don’t see him using a Rule V pick on a pitcher simply because it’s really tough to get them work unless you commit to using him regularly – so with that, yeah, I guess Tracy could be the pick.

    In 2006, when we got Abreu (and the $23 million remaining on his contract) and Cory Lidle, we gave up C. J Henry (2005 #1 pick), and 27-year-old Matt Smith, as well as Jesus Sanchez and Carlos Monasterios. Where are they now?

    I find it hard to believe that a team like the Yankees will be able to make a Rule 5 pick stick on their team all year (you have to return the pick if he doesn’t remain on your 25 man roster). But that said, the pick would have value to other teams (like the ‘Nats!).

    Maybe it will be packaged in a trade or is there someone out there Cash has his eye on?

  273. blake December 8th, 2009 at 11:56 am

    if that rumor is true then melky is a better player with a much higher ceiling than Gardner. Gardner is what his is already

  274. Bret the Hitman December 8th, 2009 at 11:56 am

    I’d rather upgrade the package and include Edwin Jackson and leave Arizona out of it altogether. If that can be done than Austin Jackson/Ian Kennedy at the top of the package would be a legit price for a 29 year old CF and 26 year old starter.

    —-

    Same here. But maybe Arizona is high on Scherzer and would require Joba or Hughes included.

    For Granderson and Edwin Jackson, they’d maybe want Jackson + Hughes + Dunn + Coke

    SI_JonHeyman if #yanks get granderson, they may still try for damon. #nicelineup

    I think that’s Heyman doing some wishful thinking for his buddy Boras.

    If the Yankees get Granderson – 2 things will happen:

    1. I will jump on the Curtis bandwagon and take back all the nasty things I said about his platoon splits because I don’t want to jinx any Yankees

    2. The Yankees will pretty much be done in the position player market. They certainly won’t be giving out a 2 year $20 mil contract to Johnny Damon.

    I’m still not crazy about the idea of putting Melky in LF though…we’ll have to see I suppose.

    Melky can certainly play RF better than Nick Swisher.
    Melky can play a pretty decent CF too, though there are better options.

  279. CountryClub December 8th, 2009 at 12:02 pm

  293. Bret the Hitman December 8th, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    It could be Granderson and Cust replacing Damon and Matsui. That would leave enough money to add Pettitte, Chapman, R. Soriano, Harden and DeRosa.

  294. Chip December 8th, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    I disagree, Chip. I think the yanks would still sign Damon…but only at their price. There would be no need to cave to Boras in any way.

    Well that’s true – they would probably turn to Boras and say 1 year 9 mil take it or leave it. And frankly I’m fine with that if he wants to take it and come on as the DH. I would actually prefer that because it would allow the Yankees to bat Damon 2nd and Granderson 5th

    I think though that if he doesn’t then the Yankees can go a couple of different ways – they can sign Cameron to play LF, play Melky in RF and go with Swisher at DH (an outstanding defensive OF with Granderson in CF) or they could go with Melky in LF, Swisher in RF, Miranda at DH. Or sign a catcher (Benji Molina?) and put Posada at DH.

  295. raymagnetic December 8th, 2009 at 12:09 pm

    I think it would make more sense for them to resign Matsui if they trade for Granderson.

    Or, they could resign Damon and make him the part time DH, part time outfielder.

    I’d prefer Matsui in the DH role however.

    Why wouldn’t they move Granderson to LF if they got him? That way you’re just replacing Damon’s production with Granderson’s and you keep Melky and Gardner as your CF’s?

  296. joe yankee December 8th, 2009 at 12:11 pm

    The deal is hopefully dead, dead, dead or just a figment of someone’s imagination. Seriously, WAY too much prospect talent for Granderson. I think Granderson is an excellent player, but lefties are tough on him and that overall batting average in 2009 scares me. But regardless, four top minor leaguers is too steep a price. Now it’s true that not all four guys may prove to be major league success stories, but they all have real talent. My initial thought was it’s not a bad deal if you pull A-Jax from the mix, but then you’re still giving away three pitchers with genuine upsides. Tough call.

    Gardber is Granderson Very Lite! He also is even weaker as a LF. Melky is the one to kee of the two along with AJ. Melky can play all 3 OF positions well. Gardy can’t. I wonder if Swish is in a trade talk somewhere too. I don’t like the idea of Swish in LF.

  299. Stan December 8th, 2009 at 12:13 pm

  302. Hugh Stacks December 8th, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    The Yankees will certainly still be in on Damon. Why would getting Granderson (a CF) have any effect on the Yankees LF/DH situation, unless you think aquiring Granderson limits the Yankees financially…in which case you would be wrong. If the Yankees get Granderson it gives them all the time and leverage in the world. They can stand pat with Melky in left, highly unlikely but they can posture this way, and let either Damon or Matsui crawl back to them, because the longer they stay on the market the more their price and options lower. I think Cash gets Granderson without giving up Jackson, a package of Melky/Gardner, Romine, Ian Kennedy and maybe one filler and then looks to package AJax (Cash has shown early on that he’s willing to trade him) and Joba, along with a few others for Halladay. Cashman is the true Ninja Assassin.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
