Two Wild Card Contenders Help Each Other Out

Mariners get Brett Gardner

Yankees get Felix Hernandez

The Mariners get a much better option in CF and a lead off hitter with pop in Gardner who could also provide veteran leadership while cutting salary in half and for one less year.

The Yankees get a veteran starter who knows how to pitch for their postseason run once he returns from the DL and would be a nice replacement for Sabathia next year as an innings eater. They have too many outfielders as it is and Ellsbury's contract is unmovable so Gardner is the odd man out. They can afford to take on his contract with A-Rod, Sabathia, and possibly Tanaka's money coming off the books after this year.

Who says no?

Felix Hernandez is out the next 3-4 weeks. this does nothing to help the Yankees. Once again bwright not well thought out.

I know he's out 3-4 weeks. I said when he gets back and also next year.

Regardless, do you think the value is fair for both teams?

No not all. Felix isn't the same pitcher he used to be. The Yankees are getting younger and he no longer fits them. Next year they have Gray, Severino, and Montgomery. I don't think Tanaka opts out after this horrible year he is having. I think they sign someone to bridge them to when Chance Adams is ready.

Fair enough. I appreciate the constructive criticism.
