Comments on: Is Gaby Sanchez Available? http://www.piratesprospects.com/2013/03/is-gaby-sanchez-available.html Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

I think Sanchez is much more likely to have a nice year compared to Snider. And that’s the exact reason I wouldn’t be looking to trade him.

Maybe the Pirates get lucky with Sanchez/Jones/Snider all having nice years…then they can look at moving 1 near the deadline. Otherwise, I like having the depth to start the year.

He was worth 2.4 WAR that season. Jones has been worth more WAR in his career, and was better last season. They are BOTH platoon players.

Sanchez or G. Jones. Both are older, non-stars who may have a shorter shelf-life than Teixeira. The Yankees, I suspect, know that the future for this team has already passed it by. They actually need those prospects — to rebuild!

But, if Steinbrenner the Lesser wants to make another Pennant run and if he needs reinforcements some of which the Pirates have, the Pirates should demand and accept nothing less than Gary Sanchez and Mason Williams. The Yankees and their methods and capacities are toxic poison for the Pirates. The Pirates ought to ruthlessly (no pun intended) exploit the Yankees when they are weak.

The Yankees choose to keep their offer lower than the Pirates’ offer.

The guy I forgot to mention is Ty Hensley, RHSP, 19, their No. 1 (30th overall) in 2012. 6’5″ 220, 92-95 mph fastball that has touched 97, and a VG 12 to 6 Curve (thought to be the best curve in the whole draft last year.
