Jeff Pearlman Blog: Xavier Nady & Damaso Marte to the Yankees

Jan 5, 2010 Full story: BTF's Baseball Primer Newsblog 6

All that being said, I want to make a point that I consider, without question, indisputable: Pittsburgh's July 26, 2008 trade of Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte to the Yankees for Daniel McCutchen, Jose Tabata, Jeff Karstens and Ross Ohlendorf was absolutely, positively terrible.

Nady should sign and become the everyday left fielder. He needs to give the Yanks a discount (yeah, right) since he has been injury prone and coming off his second Tommy John surgery.

As a Boras client I wouldn't expect Nady to give a discount yet. Maybe near the end of January but by then the Yanks may have already made a move.

Chapman to the Reds!?!?! I didn't see that coming at all.

He'll either be like El Duque or Contreras. Stud or dud.

I'm glad the Yanks laid off Chapman. They haven't had the best track record with international pitchers outside of El Duque. Irabu, Igawa, and Contraras were duds. For the Reds, it's great if it works out because they'd have a $5M/year starter but it's a gamble. The Yanks didn't need him but they better get a left fielder soon.
