Big Yanks-D-Backs-Tigers deal goes down

12:48pm: Heyman tweets that an agreement has been reached, with only medicals pending.  We'll do a fresh post once this trade is official.  To reiterate: the Yankees get Curtis Granderson, the D'Backs get Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy, and the Tigers get Max Scherzer, Daniel Schlereth, Austin Jackson, and Phil Coke.

Steal for the Tigers?

Agreed.  What was Josh Byrnes thinking.  Schlereth and Scherzer for E-Jack and I-Ken?

Good deal for Yankees, good deal for Tigers, not a good deal for D'Backs.

I'm not certain this is horrible for the Diamondbacks.  If you think about it:

 - They feel like Webb will return this year as healthy as he was in 2008 and prior.
 - They already have Dan Haren
 - Edwin Jackson is supposed to have HUGE upside and could realize this potential in a large ballpark.

If they have a 1-2-3 of Webb, Haren and Jackson that's an unbelievable front end of the rotation.  The Yankees had a marginal bullpen which is largely covered up by Rivera.  If the D-backs can get the same production out of their bullpen as the Yankees did, I think their top three starters could make them the favorite in the west which only really has the Dodgers as a strong team.

Add a couple of bats and the D-backs could be really good in the short-term with this deal.  It's the long-term that hurts them.

What a haul for the Tigers.

I kind of agree with Minty, though.  Jackson's a nice addition for the D'Backs.

But this goes to show that the Nats couldn't have even dreamed of getting him without giving up something like Storen+Detwiler.

I like this deal for both the Yankees AND the D-Backs. Curtis in that line-up is crazy to think about and like Minty said if the Webb can stay healthy they are going to have a nice trio at the front of their rotation.

Of course we don't have something like Storen+Detwiler, cause only Detwiler is tradeable out of those two, Storen not having been with the club a year yet.

That would be a LONG time to wait.  Must be a statute of limitations in there somewhere.

I still think Jackson is a wild card, Scherzer was very good at home, lots of raw potential to be a high K guy.  Jackson had one good year and faded at the end.

I think the Yankees gave up a lot for Granderson, though they are likely to move Melky now.
