Even if you assume that Del Zotto rebounds to make the club this year, he can't come close to replacing Girardi's minutes. Is Del Zotto going to take Danny's 25 minutes of rock solid defense each night? That's insanity. They're completely different players. Replacing one with the other makes no sense.
Maybe wait until Del Zotto shows he's still capable of playing serviceable defense before trading half of our first defense pairing?
And anyway, the difference between the 15th pick and the 9th pick in this draft is not substantial. You don't move pieces of the core to move up six spots in a crappy draft. Move into the top three? Maybe worth considering. Not for the ninth pick though, not even close.
