Writers Do Not Make Good GMs

Peter Abraham on his LoHud blog has proposed a number of trades for the Yankees to acquire C.C. Sabathia this season. His "untouchable list" is Austin Jackson, Jesus Montero, Phil Hughes, Andrew Brackman and Mark Melancon. Two options are offered for Sabathia:
Kennedy, Tabata and Betances
Tabata, Betances and Cano

Abraham believes one of these deals would be worth it even if Sabathia elects to leave as a free agent after 2008, because the Yankees would get two draft picks.

That is ridiculous. Unless you get a window in which to sign him to an extension, you absolutely do not make those deals. For a 2008 rental, the Yankees would be better served looking for relievers, anyway. Once teams start to fall well below .500, some quality arms will be available.

Writers don't make good GMs, but bloggers do?

Not all bloggers, but I guarantee you won't see something as ridiculous as Cano, Tabata and Betances for 2 months of Sabathia on this site.
