Re: Should we trade Mes & keep Grandal?
if we can get a piece that would help us a lot
That's the big IF. Gotta be a frontline player under team control for 3+ years, IMO. Otherwise, hang onto both. The chance still exists that they can build for the future with both guys (one at 1B or in LF -- with Mes being the more likely to move, given his athleticism). I really like Grandal's LH bat for GAB and his ability to work counts -- don't want to see them trade him for a marginal upgrade.
