    Rumor: Hatteberg to Yankees

    Per Stark's latest column:

    The Yankees continue to hunt for a first baseman. The latest rumored name on their shopping list: The Reds' Scott Hatteberg
    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/columns/story?id=2910803

    Stark also says no way a Griffey-to-ATL deal will happen.

    Hatteberg paired with Weathers might bring a nice return from the Yanks. . . It appears that the Reds have been scouting Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy, and Brett Gardner in Trenton (see note from earlier this week below). I'd appreciate any info on these prospects.

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2007/0...ys_latest.html

    "The Reds, Rockies, and others have been scouting the Yankees' Double A Trenton affiliate. Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy, and Brett Gardner are probably the most desirable players on that roster. Gotham Baseball has previously connected the Yankees to Brian Fuentes and David Weathers. Another reliever the Yankees like is Chad Bradford, though the O's price may be too high."

    I don't think there's any way they'd trade Chamberlain or Kennedy for Hatteberg.

    Maybe we can get Claussen from them.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    ... a pickle?

    I can't imagine the Yanks dealing either one of those guys even for a Hatty/Stormy combo.

    I'm not so sure, about Kennedy at least. I think Hatteberg for Kennedy wouldn't make Cashman hang up the phone. They probably definitely want more for Joba though. I'd give em Weathers and Hatteberg for Joba.

    I think you could get more for Hatteberg and Weathers than just Joba by himself. I think trading those two would net you another prospect. Probably not a Top 10 prospect in their organization, but maybe a Top 20.

    I like Betances more than Joba personally.

    I think people are undervaluing the reds. The reds have the advantage here becuase the contending teams need a certain peice/pieces. Therefor they would get more in return for what they are trading. When teams trade for a position of need they need to give more to get what they want.

    a) there aren't other viable options out there

    b) a number of teams are interested in said player

    Yeah it would be nice to snag an extra body in the deal if we could, just sayin if it came right down to it I'd pull the trigger on the 2 for 1 for Joba.

    I love Betances reportoire but his mechanics scare me a bit, especially at his age. I still would be happy to have him in the system though, no argument there.

    Joba has been pitcher of the week three times this year. He's totally dominated throughout his minor league career, actually. Here's a nice review of Joba:

    What really sticks out is Chamberlain’s phenomenal 4/1 strikeout to walk ratio. He’s also has a large frame that – despite the concerns with arm injuries – could log 180-200 innings a season. . .

    Strengths: A plus fastball with plus-plus control. An above-average slider he throws as an out pitch, and two average to above-average pitches that accompanied with the fastball look better than they are. Chamberlain has no trouble finding the zone, and rarely offers freebees to first. Has good character and has managed to excel despite the stresses of being over weight and a very young father. Has looked lean since his final season at Nebraska.

    Weaknesses: Has had a weight problem in the past. Was reportedly at or above 290 pounds early in his career. Right triceps tendonitis that some fear could resurface. While Chamberlain has very good command and control on his pitches, his change up has little movement and can stay up in the zone at times. Slider has a tendency to role into a slurve.

    MLB Comparisons: C.C. Sabathia is the obvious choice here. Similar body type and size. Both have a quiver full of fastball/change/curve/slider with above-average to plus command on all four pitches.

    Gardner strikes me as a high-OBP and good speed OFer, with little power at this point. His OBP was .433 last year in Tampa, and has dipped to .363 this year. He hits lefthanded.

    Kennedy was FSL player of the month in May. Another outstanding track record.

    Conine or Hatteberg would be a perfect fit for the Yankees. They have Phelps and Cairo playing 1st base now.

    Andy Phillips started at 1B last night. They could use an upgrade there, that's for sure.

    I didn't see that they called Phillips up. He's probably better than both Phelps and Cairo.
