My Viciedo and Smoak for Johan Santana? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Tue Jun 05, 2012 3:07 pm

Maybe this looks like an overpay on paper, but I kind of view Viciedo and Smoak as hot hand guys. Should I take this?

I would take this without blinking. Santana is right back where he was with Minnesota.

Only problem I have with this is that I am not sure that Santana stays healthy. I am going to be very interested in what he does after that no-hitter. I realize it was a no-hitter but that was a lot of pitches for a guy who missed a lot of time last year.

I think the price is right but not if it keeps you from getting Gallardo in that other deal.

The Santana owner is willing to give me CC Sabathia for my Granderson. It's very tempting if I am to get Crawford and Ells back in a few weeks.
