Betemit For Proctor Trade?

Atlanta has talked to the Yankees about a possible trade of Betemit for Scott Proctor, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

This deal only makes sense in terms of what the Reds paid for relievers in trading Felipe Lopez and Austin Kearns to the Nats.

Ie. this is overpaying.

29-year old effective relievers grow on trees.

Good hitting middle infielders who are cheap below arbitration have real value.

Plus why would the Yankees trade away pitching? they need all they can get. This trade won't happen.


As a Yankee fan I like the "idea" of getting the talented Betemit for a run of the mill middle reliever such as Proctor. However, I am not sure exactly what we would do with Betemit once Cano, Matsui, Sheffield, etc... return to health. And as average as Proctor may be, SOMEONE has to pitch in those middle innings when Jaret Wright, Sidney Ponson, Shawn Chacon etc.... can't get out of the 2nd inning of their various starts.

Please pass send that tree to Milwaukee, they obviously don't grow over there.
