Adrian Gonzalez

Pete Caldera believes that the Yankees are considering trading for Adrian Gonzalez. Gonzalez is under contract for 2009 and 2010 for a very low amount of money, he`s put up very good numbers the past two years, he`s fairly young, and is a good fielder. The numbers look good on their own, however, they are even more impressive when considering the home park he plays in. Gonzalez could be a long term solution for the Yankees. His favorable contract may also allow the Yankees to sign two free agent starters as they appear to want to. Would you give up Phil Hughes and another prospect or two for Gonzalez? Its a tough call but I think I would.

If you want to get insane then could the Yankees get both Gonzalez and Peavy in a huge mega-deal? Hughes+Cano+Montero+Kennedy+another prospect maybe? Then the Yankees would go out and sign Mike Cameron, Orlando Hudson, Casey Blake, and C.C. Sabathia or Derek Lowe. It decimates the farm but both Gonzalez and Peavy are young and relatively cheap. Keep in mind this is just rampant speculation on my part and I haven't thought this through that well.
