A Steal of a Deal!
Saturday, July 26, 2008
Sorry, Pirates fans: you lost this one.

The trade deadline is still a few days away, but the Yanks have addressed their needs and made a sweet move to fill some gaps in their roster. The Pirates and Yankees have agreed to a deal that will send right-handed outfielder X Nady and lefty reliever Damaso Marte to the Bronx in exchange for Ross Ohlendork, Jeff Karstens (remember him?), Dan McCutchen, and the one true loss for the Yanks, OF prospect Jose Tabata.

Here are the deets on our two new players:

Nady: 89 games, 327 AB, .330 avg, .383 OPB, 13 HR, 2 E and 10 assists from RF.

Marte: 47 games, 46.7 IP, 3.47 ERA, 1.157 WHIP, 16 BB, 47 K.

The Yanks really scored with this one. The bullpen has been amazing, but getting another strong lefty out there is going to be a huge help when Farnsworthless starts really sucking and Jose Veras gets tired. With Matsui out and Damon better off as a DH, Nady can play left field on a near daily basis and provide power and average in what is at the moment a super-pathetic bottom third of the lineup. Giambi has been doing fine at first base, so he can continue to play there and free up the DH spot for Damon.

I guess Brett Gardner is out of a job.

    I hated to see them part with Tabata (I think they could've gotten at least another minor leaguer in return as well) but think this was a great deal. As long as Nady doesn't have too big of a learning curve (is there really that vast of a difference?) adjusting to AL pitching this could be the deal that gets them alot closer to the ultimate prize.

    I really like the pick up of Marte, that one was like getting the black lion to complete Voltron on Christmas morning. It seems like the pitchers and the pitching coach are getting on the same page and clicking. Who would've guessed a Joba-less bullpen would be one of our stronger points? (1.....2.....3....not it...)

    When the season is over this may be looked at as the deal that secured #27.

    Have you heard any other musings about any deals yet to come YC?
