Probably won't happen. What do you think.

Mets get B Gardner
Yanks get Granderson.

Mets get Gardner for 3 years @ reasonable price to play CF.

Yanks get Grandy lefty power for 1 year and move Frazier into LF in '18.

Money is similar 15- 12.5 mil.

Pointless, Yankees are trying to cut payroll down by trading Gardner. This is counterproductive in those efforts. Also Gardner only has 2 years left on his contract.

Batman-Gardner has club option in year 3. (12.5/ yr) As for patroll, Yanks don't expect to be under cap in '17. But they will in '18 when Grandy would be off books. That's why Holliday was so attractive-1 year commitment-like Grandy. That said- I don't expect this to happen.

"I don't expect this to happen" you said it so obviously you did, and do.

Your first three words say it all.

I was just looking back at some old posts. Chisox actually proposed atrade in which the Yankees trade
Frazier-Torres-Andujar-Kaprelian-Headley-Gardner-Fowler--Rutherford and Chad Green and receive Quintana-McCutcheon and DRob
Not only does it include 4 Top 100 prospects but it also includes 2 starters. They give up their starting 3B and top 3B prospect and don't get one back.
So, if anyone sees him post-don't waste your time. He is just another delusional White Sox fan.

^^^This guy uses two months of data to support his claims. He also doesn't understand the stats he throws out.

Please also ignore him.

That proposal was essentially a joke when everyone thought Q's value was through the roof. Let's see your proposals, Mitch. It's easy to look back at old posts and critique them based on how they are performing now. lol I'm delusional? But you're reading my posts from like last fall.

Yanks are not giving up Torres or Frazier. Any package starts with Mateo. Will give shot internally to Adams or Caleb Smith before giving up Frazier or Torres. NO THANKS!

Reed is a rental. They already have fortified bullpen. So you want #2 overall prospect PLUS OF with speed and over 1.000 OPS PLUS #7 LH starter prospect PLUS SP #93 ranked prospect with 10-3 record 1.93 ERA 58 hits in 97.1 innings and .171 BAA PLUS 21 yr old OF prospect whom they rated higher than Rutherford PLUS better than average catching prospect. Love DeGrom-but not at that price.

Have you seen Jordan Montgomery pitch? Under 4 ERA in AL East. Less than hit/ Inn, .245 BAA and .714 OPS. Would you give him up for rental in Darvish. Why would Yanks give up starter to get starter. They will be looking to add SP. This is add 1 subtract 1. Are you thinking? Add in 3 Top 100 prospects (Mateo, Andujar and Fowler) FOR A RENTAL! If you say call up Adams-call him up and keep all those trade chips. You could get Sonny Gray or Gerrit Cole (2 1/ 2 yrs each) for that.

Mets could get lots more if they sold Duda, Blevins and Reed separately. Why would Yanks trade Gardner (leadoff hitter, gold glover) for Peralta who MLB projects as a #4 starter and still in AA. No need! They have plenty of SP prospects in minors-Adams, Sheffield, Kaprelian, Abreu, Ramirez, Acevedo, Tate. etc. Plus Cessa, Mitchell and Chad Green. Not a lot of thought put into this post!

Stat-just checked on Hamels trade in '14. You stated that Hamels and Q had similar numbers. The Rangers gave up prospect #30 and prospect #83 plus other marginal prospects. As you can see by my earlier post that Q was worth Top 50 and Top #100 prospects plus marginal prospects with upside. That is exactly what Phils got for Hamels. So essentially you agree with my evaluation. My only problem is when Drake overvalues Q and wanted Pirates, Astros or Yanks 3 prospects in Top 50-at least. Again, just calling out Drake with his ridiculous trade posts.

Stat-maybe you don't understand WAR. Quintana has consistently made all of his starts. That means he can accumulate more=higher WAR. Players are going to pass Trout in WAR because he is hurt. Again, he averages 4.1 WAR/ season-which is good but not All-star level. If you could check on where he ranks each year you would see he never is in Top 10 for year. By staying healthy he has ACCUMULATED WAR to place high on your list. All I'm trying to say is that Q is a good solid #2 or #3 pitcher who stays healthy. there is a lot of value in that. But when delusional posters like Drake try to pass him off as an ace and thinks that the Sox can get a ridiculous pkg for him, I just state my opinion. When others agree with me, he gets insulted and tries bringing in Sabrmetrics that just reinforce my view. NEVER an elite pitcher. I do not see where he is "special. " If you see something to the contrary-I would love to see it.
