J Upton Longo Deal WHIR!

Postby dominicfaiola » Sun Apr 07, 2013 4:13 pm

14 team H2h points league with 3 keepers a team.

Interesting offer to me now that Freeman is hurt.

I give:
Freddie Freeman*, Atl 1B from 1B to DRNK
Brandon Phillips, Cin 2B from 2B to DRNK
Justin Upton, Atl OF from OF to DRNK
Jarrod Parker, Oak SP from SP to DRNK

I get:
Eric Hosmer, KC 1B from DRNK to Bench
Nick Markakis, Bal OF from DRNK to Bench
Evan Longoria, TB 3B from DRNK to Bench
R.A. Dickey, Tor SP from DRNK to Bench

I hate the idea of giving up Upton and I really do not like this deal much but what do you think? WHIR always!

I wouldn't. Phillips, Upton and Freeman are due for great years and R.A. Dickey might regress (see his game today)

I agree. I wouldnt make this trade if I were you. The guys you are giving up have way too much potential.

I wouldn't move Upton for that. And I think Parker could wind up with comparable numbers to Dickey.

Um...
Its tough but I'd pass.
Longo and Hosmer are great upgrades for your team but what would replace your OF with and you have Reddick who needs to be DL to add a free agent utility bat.
Its not a terrible trade but Freeman will be back soon.

I don't like it. I am a big fan of Freeman. I think the hitters you give up are a lot better than what you get back. Not enough for the upgrade in pitching.

Here's mine
