During a discussion on Twitter about the relative merits of Nick Swisher and Andre Ethier, I received the following tweet from @champ11228:
The Swisher trade was probably Cashman’s best move.
I asked my followers what they thought about that statement, and a number of other moves received votes:
1) Trading for Alex Rodriguez
2) Forgoing Johan Santana and banking on CC Sabathia being available the following year
3) The Bobby Abreu trade
4) The Curtis Granderson trade
5) The Mike Mussina signing
6) The David Justice trade
I thought it would be interesting to open this question to our readers, and in a few hours we will post a corresponding piece asking about Brian’s worst moves. Personally, I think the Santana – Sabathia gambit was Brian’s best decision, while the Swisher for Betemit and Marquez swap was probably his shrewdest trade. What do you think?
