If Brett Anderson gets traded to the Blue Jays


Recommended Posts

The Blue Jays were hot after Anderson a few weeks ago, if he gets swapped to the Blue Jays do you think the Jays could trade us JA Happ and Sergio Santos for Howie Kendrick? Which side would have to throw in prospects?

If that's all we could get for Howie, then I definitely wouldn't trade him. 


We are trying to get a starting pitcher of equal value and go with a lesser option at 2b for a pitching upgrade.  The other teams we would be dealing with would likely be putting themselves into the position we are in now if they traded for howie.  There are maybe a couple of teams with a marginal surplus of pitching that need a better 2bman and are in a position to win. 


It's clear that those other teams would rather keep their pitching or give unequal lesser value instead. 


A fringe #4/5 for Howie would make me very unhappy.

Again, if it costs Kendrick to get Anderson, then no thanks. 


He might end up solid at some point, but he averaged about 60ip as a starter for the last 4 seasons.  We can't rely on that unless there are two additional guys that can give us average to slightly below average quality innings in the mix. 


You may as well sign Johan or Halladay instead.
