On December 8, 2009 the Yankees (via trade) gave up Phil Coke, Austin Jackson and Ian Kennedy to acquire Curtis Granderson.
This season, to date, Coke has pitched in 66 games for the Tigers with an ERA+ of 159. Kennedy, for the Diamondbacks, has made 28 starts, thrown 173 innings, and has an ERA + of 112. Jackson, for the Tigers, is considered to be in the running for the A.L. Rookie of the Year Award and has been mentioned as a candidate for the Gold Glove Award as well.
Curtis Granderson’s first season in New York has been up and down.
Regardless of how you felt about this trade at the time it was made, what’s your opinion of it now? Could this be one of the worst ever made by Brian Cashman – if not the worst, period?
