Would you take Pelfrey?



Over at Amazin' Avenue I wrote this post summarizing why the Mets trading Jose Reyes is just downright stupid and promoted the Mets dealing Mike Pelfrey. The top target I could find for the big right-hander was the New York Yankees - A team with a pretty crappy back-end of the rotation who will be fighting for a Wild Card spot this season (and can't necessarily rule out a run for the Division). Ivan Nova is a borderline replacement level pitcher who has little strike out ability, average-at-best command and is susceptilbe to the long ball, and Freddy Garcia is also a mediocre-at-best pitcher who very much runs the risk of allowing 30 HR in less than 100 IP with the Yankees and also has a very bad injury history. Pelfrey could very well be a welcome addition to a questionable Yankees rotation.

A proposal I made for around July included Mike Pelfrey going to the Yankees in exchange for either Andrew Brackman or Hector Noesi, Slade Heathcott, and Eduardo Nunez. If you're the Yankees, are you taking that deal? I'm interested in your thoughts. No, really, I am.
