As of May 2 – The Bigger Steal?
This off-season the much maligned Dan O’Dowd and Bill Geivett made two trades, one big that got a lot of derision and one small that was made to add depth to the team. So, which of the two has been better?
Option #1: Dexter Fowler and his $8 milllion salary with .350+ OBP for Jordan Lyles, ERA 5+ (team leader 3-0, 2.70) and Brandon Barnes, 5th OF, currently hitting over .300 (add-in, cash saved went to Justin Morneau, your average .300 hitting 7 homer GG playing 1B)
Option #2: Johnny Herrera, fan and team favorite, career average .263, good D at 2B,3B and SS for LHP Franklin Morales (3-1, 4.38 ERA) and Chris Martin ( 3 appearances with no runs)
As of May 2nd…not sure which is the better steal. Kudos 33 days in to the GMs. Which do you pick?
