Yes, accept it. I'm not sold on Corcoran and I don't like that he's in the AL-E. Hennessey is younger and pitches in a more pitcher-friendly environment. Marcus Sanders has crazy speed and his struggles at the plate are because he is so obsessed with being a great fielding SS for the future Giants, that he is trying to do too much to improve himself as a player and is pressing-- he is not this bad at the plate in reality. Accardo will close soon enough for the Giants. This trade is a no-brainer.

I tend to be a negative person and here's what I see wrong with this deal

Corcoran-though logic says that he's going to blow up really soon, he's been surprisingly solid and could be serviceable.

Robnett-22 years old in AAA already, doing solid in A+ Stockton and AA Midland, though I think both are hitter's league.

Calero-top tier(if not, 2nd tier) non closer RP.

for

Sanders-who's knows what's up with his shoulder, unlike Cliff Pennington who improved drastically lately, Sander's monthly split didn't show any improvement what so ever. He's still young and has the speed, that's the plus but he's no longer a top prospect, in fact all of the top tier Giants' prospect struggled this year.

Accardo-was never a good prospect, wasn't even drafted. Has a live arm and I like what he's doing this year. But looking around BA and Sickels didn't like him much.

Hennessey-the guy strikes out too little and walks too much. enough said.

convince me? :-?

Really, the way I see it is, that this trade is just a bunch of scrubs when you get right down to it. If I had to choose someone who I like or thought would turn into the best pro, it would be Sanders.

But really, this trade isn't going to put either team over the top, now and probably not in the future, so if there is 1 guy on either side that you really like go ahead and take that side. To me that guy is Sanders....... just my opinion.
