Now that C.J. Wilson and Mark Buerhle are off the table, adding starting pitching through free agency isn't going to be easy or cheap. The same can be said for the trade market.
Teams are looking for a lot when it comes to their pitchers. The Oakland Athletics are asking for at least two high-level prospects when it comes to Gio Gonzalez, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Gonzalez finished with a 3.12 ERA, 16 wins, 197 SO, and a WHIP of 1.32. That's ace-like numbers if you ask me.
He has skills that any team would love to have, especially the Yankees, but they would have to give up a good amount to get him.
We'll take a look at the reasons why the Yankees should trade for him and why they shouldn't while also looking at who they can deal to get him.
