I would prefer Bay
I do not like it one bit.NEW YORK -- According to SI.com's Jon Heyman, the Yankees have acquired outfielder Xavier Nady and reliever Damaso Marte from the Pirates for Jose Tabata, Ross Ohlendorf and two other minor league prospects.
I would prefer Bay
I would prefer not give up Tabata when his stock is at an all time low, for **** sake... this trade sucks
When do they mention it during the game??
I really think Olendorf can be a good ML pitcher.
Depending on who the other 2 prospects are I think the Yanks win this deal.
You also get 2 years of Nady and he gives you the option to move in another direction in regards to Giambi, Melky and Abreu if you want.
Nady is eh....I see it deal like this
Tabata for Nady... no worth it IMO
Ohlendorf for Marte... defiantly worth it
The Pirates will get Jose Tabata, Ross Ohlendorf and two other prospects from the Yankees for Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte, SI.com's Jon Heyman reports.
Pittsburgh came down off its initial price tag an awful long way then. Tabata still has very exciting potential and is incredibly young, but his wrist problem are scary and he's looking like a headcase. Ohlendorf has never been a good bet to develop into anything more than a sixth- and seventh-inning guy. Pitcher Phil Coke is also believed to be in the deal, and he's a true long shot to help.
The final package from the Yankees is Ross Ohlendorf, Jose Tabata, Phil Coke, and George Kontos, according to multiple sources - BP
I thought Marte was better?
4-0, 3.47 ERA, 46.2 IP, 38 H, 4 HR, 16 BB, 47 SO, .217 AVG.
LH in 55 AB- 14 H, 1 HR, 4 BB, 22 SO, .255 AVG.
RH in 120 AB-24 H, 3 HR, 12 BB, 25 SO, .200 AVG.
I'm happy with the trade. For now. Let's see how Nady Does
Good move by the Yankees, Marte is a stud.
Good trade for the Yanks. Tabata isn't that good. Nady is solid on defense has a very solid arm and rakes lefties.
