If you are dead set on making this deal I would go for Reyes over Bay, just because Outfield is a deeper position.

HOWEVER, I might just stand pat.....personally.

No go for me. ARod is better than either Reyes or Bay and that is the big difference in the trade.

I wouldn't do this either. I think A Rod is still too valuable...

I also wouldn't keep Morrow or Feliz in the first 8 rounds, I'd rather have earlier draft picks...

I have to say no this deal. The only category Tim Lincecum trumps Wainwright in is K's and its not by that much. ARod is on the decline but its not drastic by any means and Reyes has had trouble staying on the field.

I agree with the others. Wainwright and Lincecum are basically a draw. A-Rod is getting older, but he is still plenty more valuable than Reyes or Bay. Reyes will swipe more bags, but A-Rod thumps him in HR, RBI and could score more runs as well. 3B and SS are both thin positions while OF is certainly deeper.

Keep Wainwright and ARod....Reyes still has injury concerns and Wainwright is becoming a top 5 pitcher in the league

Depends what is left at SS and what is left at 3B. Honestly, I would keep the Arod/Wainwright side just because Arod can explode for 40-50 HR in any given year still, but with Reyes, the most HR you are getting best case scenario is 15-20. I will take power over speed anyday when you can just own a guy like bourn, pierre, or r davis as your OF 4 and plug in when you need speed and the matchups for those guys are favorable. Although it depends what is left at SS and 3b, but I would stay put.

Really?! Are you aware that ARod has had exactly 2 40+ HR seasons in the last 7 years? His HR numbers have declined over the past 4 seasons, and not in favor of better contact, his batting average has also dropped over 30 points in that span.

What is harder to find:
.275 AVG ... 30 HRs ... 100+ RBI ... 75 Rs from a 3B (Longoria, Zimmerman, ARam, Wright, Beltre, McGehee are all capable of a similar line)

or

.280 AVG ... 15 HRs ... 65 RBI ... 110 Rs ... 60 SBs from a SS (Hanley, Rollins, Tulo and that's pretty much it and none of those guys will touch 60 SBs)

I'd still rather have ARod in this spot because of Reyes recent injury issues, but keep in mind ARod hasn't seen 600 ABs since 2005. No way does ARod see 50 HRs again (that's some serious Yankee fan diarrhea).
