The other owner wasn't content with a simple deal for a rental player in Mariano Rivera so he threw this out there. I'll admit that it intrigued me a bit. But of course I am in love with Brett Anderson so before pulling the trigger I need the collective opinion of the experts. So here goes:
I give up
1. Tex...on a decent deal for $20 and can be extended multiple years but 1B guys seem plentiful
2. Desmond Jennings.....I read that he was "Carl Crawford with plate discipline." That excites me. He's especially valuable in this league because he'll hit a few HRs, he'll drive in runs, and he steals bases.....to me, he's a big piece to the deal
3. Ricky Nolasco...i'm indifferent on him i guess.....he's due to be extended at the end of the year and i'm not really sure he's good enough for that.
1. Brett Anderson...I gave him up in a deal for Grady Sizemore a few years ago and I'd really like to get him back
3. Mariano Rivera....I never like paying a lot for closers but I really think that I could make a nice run at the playoffs this year and all I'm really giving up here for Mo is Nolasco, which in my opinion isn't much
