Let’s hope Brian Cashman does.
His refusal to include Ian Kennedy in a deal for Johan Santana, at least this past year, turned out to be wrong. Plain and simple.
Now he has a chance to redeem himself.
From MLB Trade Rumors….
Today, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News says the Yankees’ chances for Peavy are improving as Kevin Towers struggles to find a match with an NL team on the pitcher’s list. Feinsand says Towers wants two pitchers and an outfielder for Peavy. He believes the Yanks could build a deal around Phil Hughes or Austin Jackson, though they might need to include Ian Kennedyas well. Brian Cashman seems a bit more open to trading Hughes than he was a year ago.
“Brian Cashman seems a bit more open to trading Hughes than he was a year ago. ” Ya think?!?!?
Serisouly, if this is a legit offer that the Padres will do, how can the Yankees not do this? Haven’t they learned? Can you imagine a rotation of Peavy, Sabathia, Wang, Chamberlain and whoever else? You wanna break the bank, make it Lowe or Burnett. You don’t, spend that money on Texiera.
The only part of that deal I would try to switch would be Melky instead of Austin Jackson.
And I don’t even care if Hughes turns out good in SD, pitching in PetCo. Peavy will be 28 next year, and is under team control for the next three. You have to make this deal.
