Evaluating the Trade Market: Outfield

The trade deadline is inching closer, and rumors are heating up. Last week I took a look at the second base market (hint: it sucks). Today we’ll take a shot at the corner outfield market, which is slightly more robust. Brennan Boesch and Delmon Young continue to underwhelm, Andy Dirks is still shelved for the […]

As you probably remember, A.J. Burnett, despite a terrible season with the Yankees last year, came into Comerica Park during game four of the ALDS last year with the Tigers on the brink of victory – and shut them down.
