That's like me valuing Derek Stepan more than a dmen like Girardi. Good player, would love to have him in this organization, but the trade doesn't make sense for us.

If you do understand the Rangers and their personnel, you would realize that Girardi's the only sure-thing we have at RD. We have Richards and Stepan as our 1C and 2C. Who's behind Girardi on our depth chart? Stralman.

Staal and McDonagh are better, and more valuable dmen than Girardi, but one of them is more expendible considering we have McD, Staal, and Del Zotto on the depth chart.

We're trying to upgrade our 3C. Not, move a player like Girardi. Especially for O'Reilly. If I tried to propose Stepan for a bona fide 1st pairing dmen, I would get flamed, despite me being a huge Stepan fan-boy homer.
