Welcome, Brian McCann
I'm bummed to lose a valuable first round pick, but I'm sure the Yanks will at least get a high pick back if/when Curtis Granderson signs elsewhere, so it doesn't sting quite as much.
And I do know that McCann will be on the wrong side of 30 once the season starts, but his number have been remarkably consistent, and I think his power will play out nicely in Yankee Stadium. And from what I've read, he's a very positive influence in the clubhouse.
The deal is perhaps a tad too long, so here's to hoping for a a few good years behind the dish, and then a seamless transition to 1B/DH at the end of the deal.
