That Greinke trade is straight up awful. Maybe your worst yet.

Just stop already, you keep proving that you don't know what you are doing. If Greinke was going to be a Yankee, he probably would have been one years ago. But they have never had any interest in him.

Greinke’s contract minus Ellsbury means Greinke is worth about 16M a year.

To get Greinke at that cost, the Yankees have to include a very, very good prospect. Think someone like Loaisiga or Florial.

thestatbook, you are not taking into account Greinke’s third year at $34 million when’s Ellsbury only has two left at $22 each. That counts for a lot. And Holder can be a dominant cheap controllable reliver for them for years. Voit can fill in at first base for them if they trade Goldschmidt until they get a long term answer. And Kahnle is a high upside voice back candidate for their bullpen woh doesn’t make a lot of money either. I don’t think that’s a horrible return.

Its terrible. Again, your worst yet.

The Yankees get Greinke at about 16M a year after you balance his contract with Ellsbury. That’s insanely valuable, even at Greinke’s age.

You don’t trade value for guys who are hurt (Ellsbury), DFA candidates (Holder), reclamation projects (Kahnle) and placeholders (Voit) .
