From the other side(s):
- Buster: Strong reaction so far from other teams: Some execs from other AL East teams believe Yankees just made an incredible trade.
- Kevin Goldstein: Brian Cashman shownig Jon Daniels that there’s more than one ninja in the American League.
- Jon Morosi: #Yankees suddenly have starting depth to spare: Sabathia, Kuroda, Pineda, Nova, Burnett, Hughes, Garcia. Your move, #RedSox (and #BlueJays).
- Jayson Stark: Pineda’s average fastball last year traveled 94.7 mph, according to FanGraphs. The only 3 starters who beat that: Ogando, Verlander & Price
- Evan Grant: I think the Yankees “win” the Mariners deal. Pineda is a potential No. 1.
- Me (well, Rany): Giddy-up RT @jazayerli Yankees willing to trade Montero for 3 mo of CLee. Instead they traded him for 5 yrs of Pineda. I’d call that a win.
- Jim Callis: I’d put him at No. 5, between Williams & Bichette. @bdelbanco: how about where Campos would be on
- Joel Sherman: Feedbck from 4 GMs and all liked trade for
#Yankees. One said, ‘They had great trade chip (Montero) and used it wisely”.
- Chad Moriyama: Yankees signed Hiroki Kuroda for Juan Rivera and two of the pieces of shit the Dodgers signed to two year deals.
- Jayson Stark: Montero-Pineda is one of most fascinating deals in years. Two young studs with star power. No money factor. A pure, old-time baseball trade.
- Chip Buck: I think every Red Sox needs to add the
#fml hashtag to every tweet for the rest of the night.
- Bryan Hoch: In one night, Yankees rotation mix has become this, in some order: Sabathia, Pineda, Kuroda, Nova, Garcia, Hughes, Burnett.
- Joel Sherman: Campos is slider/changeup/fastball that
#Yankees saw at 97 mph last yr, avg 93-94.
- YankeeMegInPHL: Don’t fret, Red Sox Nation. Truck Day is coming soon.
- TylerKepner: Amazing how franchise of Griffey/ARod/Edgar/Buhner/etc is now so hopeless offensively that they trade potential ace Pineda for Montero.
- Joe Sheehan:
#Yankees get two excellent pitchers. In a related story, the #Metsdidn’t have to borrow money or provide documents in a civil trial today.
- Jeff Passan: Jose Campos a very legit prospect going back to Yankees, too. Always prefer bats over arms, but Yankees got two excellent righties.
