They'll get enough hitting to offset the shaky starting pitching. Perhaps Humberto Sanchez and Chamberlain can come up and supply some much needed help in the bullpen. That would be more valuable than acquiring Tex.

Value wise I think it's a good trade, but I dont think the Yankees need another bat. Let Chamberlin develop and the Yankees will have a nice 1-2-3 combo of Wang, Hughes, and Chamberlin in the near future.

The Yankees hitters are getting very old, Tex is turning 28 next year, has the gold glove they have needed at 1st, and will likely produce more runs than Chamberlin will save vs. a mediocre pitcher unless he is the ace some of you think he is.
