Cashman said he's willing to sit on the Trade Deadline.. I doubt he does. We may be sitting here well right now, but we need to protect ourselves a bit.
I'd love Cueto, but that price will be
Might as well just wait for Free Agency if we want to add him. That's the guy I want in Free Agency, for a trade? No thanks.
Samardzija is an interesting look, but would all depend on the cost, but I'm weary of him.
But if we're going to chase somebody.. It should be Ben Zobrist. We need to get Drew out of here.
AB: 213 vs 249
BA: .258 vs .181
OBP: .346 vs. .255
SLG: .423 vs .369
HR 5 vs 12 (But if Zobrist is in Yankee Stadium, he likely closes that gap)
RBI 32 vs 25
BB 30 vs 26
SO 22 vs 46
Runners on .341/.422/.593 vs. .189 / .258 / .311
He's also a Switch Hitter, so gives us more flexibility, and hits .294 / .385 against LHP.
And while Drew is a better fielder by a good amount, he still has been below Defensive WAR. If that's why we are keeping him around, he should at least be decent at it. Go get Zobrist for nothing, and make Drew the utility fielder.Edited by Essential1 - 7/20/15 at 2:18pm
