The Afraud situation.

This was just posted on my blog this morning, followed by the first response to it.

Eddie OConnor said...

I have a way of handling the Afraud situation. Trade Afraud straight up for CJ Wilson and let Montero take over third base.

Eddie, as a Yankee fan I would do the deal in a heartbeat. I think Texas remembers the three years they had the cancer on their team and they finished last all three years Afraud was there.

I personally love the idea. I have not been asked to interview CJ Wilson yet, but likely will be asked.

What does anyone think? I have a pretty good idea what most would say, but it is an interesting idea.

Re: The Afraud situation.

What about for Carlos Zambrano? Epstein makes his first big splash and trades a guy who has clashed with team mates and managers.

Edit: Just realized Zambrano might be a FA. Not sure though.

Re: The Afraud situation.

Zambrano is not WIN METHOD and wouldn't be a fit for the YANKEES.

Re: The Afraud situation.

What makes you think that Montero can play 3rd base?

The yanks arent trading anyone. They'll sign somebody but the guys they have now are there to stay.

Re: The Afraud situation.

I agree. We do not know if Montero can play third base. I however do think that may be the best place for him. Arod, at best is just an average fielder. Plus, do to steroid abuse Arods body may be breaking down, restricting his movement and eroding his limited defensive skills even more. Montero is very young and may be able to be trained to play third base. Won't know unless it is tried. But I do not see it happening unless Arod is dumped, which in my opinion, can only help the YANKEES.

There may be one or two players the YANKEES may trade for the right deal. Of the starters I would consider trading only Arod, Swisher, and Martin. Pitchers, Soriano, Burnett, Ayala, Logan, Wade, Noesi. I would hold the better minor league pitching prospects and develop them. Other than that, I think the team is pretty much set for another playoff spot. The key to winning it all could be a good quality starter.

I do look for Hughes to come back with a very solid year. I feel he and the YANKEES have learned from their mistake of last winter.

An infield combination of Montero and Jeter at 3rd/ss gives the Yankees one of the worst defensive infields in all of major leagues. Montero is projected to be a 1B/DH, 3rd base in all likelihood is out of the question. I see Montero getting around 80 games at DH, 20-30 games at C, and the rest at 1B.

As for arod the difficulty of trading him far exceeds the potential return. He has around 140 mil left on his contract and has a no trade clause on top of it. If the Yanks really want to clear 3rd base they're better off putting Arod in left field and see what happens.

I disagree on some of your points. Jeter has been one of the best if not the best defensive shortstops over his career. I do not know what Montero would be able to give us defensively at third. Just because he is projected somewhere does not mean he could perform satisfactorily th third. No way on earth can Arod play the outfield, he is even horrid on infield popups. I agree Arods contract is the problem, but that can resolved by just chucking him and paying him. Lets see how much he wants to play or if he will just sit at home and watch. Teixeira when given a day cannot be replaced by Montero. First base is much harder than third base and take more defensive talent.

Re: The Afraud situation.

I do not argue he is not as great as he was in the past, but he is more than satisfactory now. I have absolutely no qualms about Jeter playing shortstop for the YANKEES for the next few years. Great physical shape, great acumen, and with Cano a superb double play combination.

Re: The Afraud situation.

Currently Jeter is actually one of the worst if not the worst defensive shortstop according to most advance statistics. He has been bad for quite a few years now.

As for Montero at 3rd quite frankly I don't see it. I'm not saying that first base is easier to play than 3rd base but given Montero's body type and current abilities it's a much easier position to play than 3rd.

Re: The Afraud situation.

Defensive statistics are totally meaningless and have absolutely no value. They are created by fools and used by fools.
