Duda & Flores to Yanks for Brett Gardner.

No way Yanks do that trade for below avg RF & unproven 3B.

MAYBE they do Murphy (to play 3B) & Familia for Gardner. Other teams could probably offer better players than that though.

If it wasn't a violation of the prime directive, I'd consider trading them Wright for their top 5 prospects + Phelps.

no thanks...a package containing Flores can bring back more than Gardner...

Flores is unproven in MLB. And a lousy fielder. At couple different positions they tried him. Duda is borderline major leaguer. Gardner is MLB proven. In NEW YORK!! Fast. 47 SB/ 162 gms career avg. Good OBP. Career OBP .355. Would be HUGE OF upgrade. AND answer need for leadoff man. I'd do that trade in a NY minute!!!

Flores is certainly no Myers but I think you are undervaluing him a bit. LOUSY fielder? Don't think that is very accurate? Gold glover? No....but I see his fielding as average.

Flores has been tried at couple different positions. Not good at any of them. 3B is probably his best position. Just about adequate. Decreases his overall value if he can hit but not field. And no one knows yet if he can hit MLB pitching.
