If you told me the Arizona Diamondbacks would be still relevant after the Yankees weren't I probably would have slapped you. Ian Kennedy says thank you, Mr. Cashman.
I'm sure the Yankees don't regret the trade - and they shouldn't with the way Grandy performed this season - but I have to believe they'd have had a better shot with Jackson and Kennedy instead of Granderson.
Kennedy likely wouldn't have done as well in the AL East, but he would have been worlds better than the Yanks 4th and 5th starters. And maybe even their #3.
And Jackson can cover a lot more ground in CF than Granderson. With the Yankees lineup, they can afford to sacrifice some offense for better range (and an equal-to-better glove) in the OF.
