Playerwise, I agree with you.

You typically get the better prospects in return if the player you're getting isn't going into FA like Garza and Dempster are. Those two aren't in the situation that Jimenez, Fister, and Pence were when they were moved last season.

You can never underestimate the Yankees' willingness to take on salary though.

Steinbrenner the Younger has mandated they cut payroll, so we'll see what Cashman does in the next few weeks.
