Did the Yankees trade for Hinske to replace the players they plan on trading for Huston Street?

Question by Wilde33: Did the Yankees trade for Hinske to replace the players they plan on trading for Huston Street?
It’s seems strange to me that the Yankees would get Hinske unless they planned on trading some of their other players. Would a package of Brett Gardner or Melky Cabrera and Brian Bruney (plus a few low level prospects) be enough to get Huston Street?

Best answer:

Answer by TheSandMan
i dont understand the move to get hinske unless a) the trade possibility for somebody like huston street or b) somebody is going to the DL that they are trying to keep quiet about—i know matsui is having knee problems so they might be hush hush about him

but i wouldnt wanna see gardner or bruney for street..hughes has been a great fit in the bullpen and i would like to see him stay there

if they are trying to package a deal to get a back end starter then i would be on board for that

I don’t think that Huston Street would be a good fit at all. As for the trade for Hinske, the Yankees wanterd another bat for the outfield. Hinske is a better hitter than Gardner or Pena.
