Trade Proposal Update

So, I proposed a trade earlier including Drew Storen and Anthony Rendon for a package centered around Gary Sanchez. This post will be to elaborate on the hypothetical players that would be involved in the deal.

First, I think David Robertson is better in a set up role than the closer role. He has had command issues in the past and his demeanor seems more like a set up man from my perspective. Storen is a guy that was groomed as a closer and has saved 40 plus games in a season(2011) From the Nats' perspective, Storen and the team had a falling out after the Rafael Soriano signing and his numbers took a noticable drop last season. This leads me to the idea that Storen may need a change of scenery.

For Rendon, he is overshadowed by the Nats current stars on the roster while offering average power and average speed albeit with exceptional defense. With that being said his production last year was comparable to Omar Infante at second base, which is hardly all star material. The hope that he will grow into above average power in the future is what makes him such an intriguing player. Although the Nat's are high on him, he is not Bryce Harper and he has had injuries in the past which means he may be movable in the right deal.

From the Yankees side, my hypothetical trade would be:

Gary Sanchez

Preston Claiborne

Juan Campos

Austin Romine

Manny Banuelos

Sanchez would give a future all star bat with the physical tools to be a good catcher in the future. He just turned 21 so there's no reason why he shouldn't be able to stay at catcher. In Claiborne they would get a young reliever with good stuff. Campos should be a number three starter down the road which is valuable. Romine would provide insurance given Ramos' injury history and is expendable due to the McCann signing. Banuelos would be a wild card prospect being that he may bounce back, he might not.

I acknowledge that this hypothetical trade is still highly unlikely, but I think they should at least try to acquire Storen or maybe try a three team trade.
