    Would you do Kearns for Philip Hughes?

    I understand the Yankees are considering sending Philip Hughes, their 20 year old phenom, to Milwaukee for Carlos Lee. Considering Lee will be a free agent, I hate to see the Brewers get this kid.

    If you're not familiar with him, here is a link:

    Kearns for Hughes? Denorfia moves up and to right. Hughes joins Homer Bailey to give the Reds' future a number one and a number two. Block the Brewers from getting the kid.

    What do you think? Good idea or Fool's gold???

    But would the Yankees?

    With the year Lee is having, I can't see the Yankees taking Lee over Kearns.

    Only problem I see with Hughes is injury concerns.

    They would get to keep Kearns. Lee would just be a rental as he is heading to free agency.

    I dont think the Yankees would. But if they offered the deal, without a bat of the eye I would say yes. I would like to see Hughes pitch a complete season, but he has very good stuff and is doing quite well in AA right now at the age of 20.

    No one is ever a rental for the Yankees - if they traded for a guy in the final year of his contract and they wanted to keep him there is absolutely no doubt they would keep him.

    True, but they would have to pay through the nose yet again to do so, and the murmurings from NY in the last year have been that they want to get away from that for a bit. We will see.

    Re: Would you do Kearns for Philip Hughes?

    Hughes is flavor of the day. I'd rather get a guy two or three years older for Kearns, like a Jason Hirsh. Beyond that, I'd rather more than one prospect. I just don't care for the years of risk involved with an arm like Hughes being the sole return for a major league player like Kearns.

    So my answer would be no. I'd rather the Reds be the team that drafted some kid and two years turned him into an established major leaguer.

    What if they included Tabata? I know he's even younger and very raw but you are talking quite a bit of talent between he and Hughes.

    I agree, but I wonder about next year. The Yankees will have Matsui and Sheffield back to flank Damon. Would they sign Lee and trade one of the other two? If they would opt for Kearns, then they'd have an affordable fourth outfielder next season who could also defensively spell Sheffield or be on hand should injuries strike again.

    Also, might the Yankees not be worried that Lee will do another second half disappearing act like last year? Remember he finished the first half with 76 RBI's but only had 38 in the second half.

    Who on earth would take Kearns over Lee? Especially when money's no object. That's just nuts.
