So you're saying Chapman and Hamilton aren't good enough?
I also offered up Cingrani..........not good enough?
It seems to me you want to give up TOO MUCH pitching.
Most experts will tell you that pitching has more value than hitters. Yet you want to unload Travieso, Stephenson, and Cingrani or Corcino in the same trade. That's wayyyyyyy too much.
We'll just agree to disagree.
I also said in the other thread that to get Stanton, it's gonna hurt a bit in what we give up. That statement sure doesn't sound like I don't realize what it's going to take to get Stanton.
I agree some of my proposed trades have some fodder in them. But the point of those trades is that if I have to give up the sun, the moon, and the stars to get Stanton, I don't want him. There are only certain quality players I'm willing to deal. Then there are my untouchables.
I would deal Billy Hamilton for Stanton. I'd deal Chapman for Stanton.
I don't really want to deal either.
Stanton is just entering arbitration for the next 3 or 4 years. Headley is making $8.6M this season with another arbitration raise coming in 2014 and then he hits free agency. Headley will be making tons more money than Stanton first.
