    I'm not saying he won't be a good trade, but I don't see this trade with the Rockies happening, they have Arenado in 3B and Daniel Murphy in 1b for the next 2 years, maybe moving Andujar to the OF, or sending back Murphy as part of the package might work for the Rockies, too many ifs

    Basically guys you couldn't trade Andujar for without having some seriously good blackmail on the other GM.

    If the Rockies could get Andujar, I don't think they would let oft-injured Danny Murphy be the obstacle. Did the Yankees let Ellsbury get in the way of acquiring Aaron Hicks?

    Of course, trading Andujar for Schwarber, which is the thread title here, would just be a bad move by the Yankees...

    Thing is, we donít need to deal Andujar. If we want him to work on 3rd, heís got options remaining. If we want his bat in the lineup, weíve got COF, 1b, 3b and DH at bats for him. If we want to move him, we will get something good. I donít deal Andujar for a one year rental. Iíd rather buff his stock and move him for someone special or keep him.

    I have said before that we need a leader in our rotation. We have enough talent in that rotation. Nobody has more raw talent than Sevy. Paxton is close. German has incredible talent. Tanaka has been a post season ace. Happ has proven previously and at the end of the year that he can survive as a 5. The problem is, we need a leader. We need a CC circa 2009. We need a guy who is going to be the face of the rotation. THAT is how you reinforce this team and win a World Series. That is all we need. Weíve got tons of offensive talent. Weíve got a bullpen that can win games on its own at times. We just need a guy to hand the ball to on opening day to show this team the way to do it. I donít want a Jon Gray if thatís the only addition. I donít want a Zach Wheeler if thatís the only addition. I need an ace. Give me Stras. Give me Cole. Heck, maybe even some MadBum love would help. But donít give me a guy who cannot do it. We need someone more than just a has been ace like CC was. We need someone to count on in the ace role

    Now that is hyperbole and you know it.
    The rebuild is complete.

    And yet if the Red Sox could get Andujar and plug him in at 1B, I would be extremely excited...

    Now this is just dumb. Andujar has been working on his defense constantly and since being cleared to throw, has been at their tampa complex gearing up for the season. The idea that he isn't working is preposterous. The possibility that his issues aren't correctable is there, though
    The rebuild is complete.

    With the Cubs looking like sellers, the talk of Kyle to the Yankees is back. If I'm Cashman I call Theo and make him an offer for Rizzo.

    I donít do that at all. With our salary issues, adding someone older who makes a lot of money, even if heís worth that money, doesnít help us in the long run. We got to the ALCS because of our depth. Dealing that depth off prior to when we need to is a recipe for failure.

    Listen, Voit was every bit as good as Rizzo prior to injuring his oblique in July. Iíd like to see what Voit can do when heís healthy

    I Like Rizzo, but not for Andujar; if we deal Andujar it should be for a good SP.

    If we can get Rizzo for Voit and some others mid level prospects, I'm all in. The Cubs will want a top prospect for Rizzo and we're not that desperate for a 1B

    The Yankees should just forget about trading Andujar for Rizzo or Schwarber and just play him at 1b. An infield of Andujar (1b), LeMahieu (2b), Torres (SS), and Urshela (3b) seems fine to me...

    Voit can swing it too, so thatís not entirely perfect. Listen, I wonder if Gio moves around the diamond a little bit to ensure everyone gets rest
