    Should the Yankees trade for JA Happ next year?

    This ia great idea for the Yankees. He is a guy no one will look at for any competing team to bring in. He is a young, hard throwing, lefty. When do you ever come in contact with a young hard throwing lefty. He also has had success in the majors. I think he would be a great addition to Yankees rotation.

    They could offer Chamberlain and one of great young catchers Yankees have and maybe another minor leaguer. If trade goes down Yankees rotation next year (i think Lee will join the team and Pettite will retire)

    Lee
    Sabathia
    Hughes
    Haap
    Burnett

    or if Lee doesn't comed and Pettite comes back

    Sabathia
    Pettite
    Hughes
    Haap
    Burnett

    If Lee and Pettite do not come

    Sabathia
    Hughes
    Haap
    Burnett
    (Someone else)

    If Lee and Pettite come back

    Lee
    Sabathia
    Pettite
    Haap
    Hughes (can battle for 5th spot with Burnett)

    What do you all think?

    Hard throwing? His fastball doesn't average even 90.

    I'm not a fan at all. I'd rather have Chamberlain.

    Hard throwing lefty that averages 89 MPH?

    Chamberlain + Romine/Sanchez + filler for J.A Happ?

    That would be a no.

    I would love Happ. Not all about velocity, the guy can pitch. Just need to keep him healthy and you can never have enough lefties. I would love for the Yanks to bring Pettitte back, acquire Lee and Happ. Can you imagine a rotation of 4 quality lefties? Who needs Crawford or Werth with that rotation? Sign me up.

    Ok he isn't hard throwing I just built him up cause I like him alot.

    I would trade a minor leaguer plus one of 4 great catchers in minors for him. Hows that?

    Why build a player up into something he isn't though? It's not like you're fooling anyone.

    I wouldn't trade any of the catchers + a prospect for Haap. Romine isn't a "great" catcher & the only other ones with star potential are Montero & Sanchez. Who's the 4th?

    This is fairly pointless.

    "Random minor leaguer + random catcher." You do realize the other team has to agree, right?

    Of course I do. The whole point of this thread is to see if you guys think the Yankees should pursue Haap!!!!!

    I don't think they should.

    Regardless of the merits of this idea, why is it being discussed in the middle of the playoffs?
    "We understand that John Henry must be embarrassed, frustrated and disappointed by his failure in this transaction. Unlike the Yankees, he chose not to go the extra distance for his fans in Boston."

    Let me explain my perspective. I look at his numbers, and I see a guy who strikes out a below average amount of batters, walks and above average amount of batters, and gives up an above average amount of homeruns. Batters make an above average amount of contact against him and his stuff does not seem like anything to get excited about. I just don't see him doing very many things well. I know he has that shiny ERA so far in his career, but for the reasons above I do not believe that his ERA is representative of how good he is. I would personally estimate him to be about a 4.5 ERA pitcher in the AL east. In other words, I see him as nothing more than run of the mill starter. I think Joba is at least as good, is younger, and has better stuff.

    H-a-p-p


    ....and I would rather see Joba get another crack at it.

    Re: Yankees should trade for JA Haap? Next year

    NL pitcher with fringe stuff and terrible command? Where do I sign up?

    No. Happ is terrible, and trading Chamberlain for him is insane.
