    Does the Gathright trade "free up" Reggie Sanders to the Yankees?

    Interesting deal today which sent Gathright from Tampa to KC. You have to wonder if this is a domino deal that could send Sanders to the Yankees. We know they've been talking (and KC has asked for too much), but now KC has DeJesus, Gathright, and Emil Brown in the outfield. Sanders is a 4th outfielder who has very little value in the long range plans of the club. You have to wonder if something is going on with a possible deal.

    Reggie Sanders is a bad baseball player....and I dont want him. Face reality people, we are NOT getting any bigtime OF's via trade unless we give up alot...which I dont want, and Cashman wont do anyways.

    We are gonna play with what we have now.....so get used to alot of Bernie, Crosby, Reese, KT, Cabrera. Get used to getting little to no production from the OF. And get used to this team struggling.

    I wouldn't give up Hughes unless the Yanks get Ichiro or that caliber for him.
    The days of trading blue chips for bull chips are hopefully over.
    Carlos Beltran wanted to play CF for the Yankees, not the mets. The Yankees said no. Mark Teixeira wanted to play 1B for the Yankees, not the sux. The Yankees said yes!

    Exactly, I would not even have the stone if I were a GM to ask for Hughes if I were offering Reggie Sanders. I just cannot stand being laughed at!!

    Exactly

    I'd stop at "has very little value"

    Why do we want him? We're already running one 37 year old outfielder out there almost every day

    I agree, 38. Why in the hell do the Yankees want him? We've already got his equivalent in Bernie Williams, and Bernie is actually hitting for a better average this year.

    If the Yanks are gonna make a move for a corner OFer, I at least want Sori....and I don't even want him on the Yanks that much at all to begin with.

    Why would you not want Sori? I understand that he would cost more than the Y's can or should give up. But that is a different question. The y's need another live bat.

    Right; all of his HRs were hit against the Yankees in 3 games. And how many "horrifying" plays have you witnessed?

    You are the guy who would rather try to get into the playoffs this year with Melky in LF than Soriano. There isn't an executive or manager in baseball who would rather have Soriano in LF for the rest of this year than Melky. I know he would cost too much. But, please, don't try to tell us that he is not a valuable player simply because his defense is below average and he swings at bad pitches. The Yankees would be very, very fortunate to have some one at his level playing LF right now.

    Don't tell 38Special this but coming into play tonight Sori's on-base percentage was identical to Melky's. There's a little difference in their slugging percentages, though. Having said that, Soriano isn't really a good fit with the Yanks longterm and he would cost too much for a half-season rental.

    If Reggie Sanders is a 4th outfielder, Joey Gathright is a 12th OF'er. .190 batting averages don't get you very far.

    Sori came into tonight with a .349 on-base and went two for five tonight, so it's at .350 at least, and that's slightly above average. I would never have thought it possible. But I agree with you, Soriano isn't a fit with the Yanks. He's not a good enough a second baseman defensively and we have a very solid leftfielder for the longterm. And he would cost WAY too much when the chances are probably 50-50 Matsui will be back in mid-August.

    I say no thanks to Reggie Sanders. Let Melky Cabrera and Kevin Thompson learn on the fly in Yankee pinstripes.
