Thought id try to tap some of you with minors insight.

i have been offered jeremy reed, omar infante, and prince fielder....for my JD Drew, Ubaldo Jimenez, and lastings milledge

italics = minor league roster

should i pull the trigger on this? im having a difficult time determining current MLB player value (drew) vs. minors stud prospect (fielder)

THANKS MUCH!

Well I think you can simplify the trade down to Reed/Prince for Drew/Milledge. Because Infante I don't see as much more then just a useful player, nothiing special. Where as Jimenez is a Rockies pitcher and I don't even bother with them.

I would take Reed/Fielder (also Infante is/will be more useful then Jimenez). The reason is, although I like Drew as a player, his value I doubt will ever be higher. He managed to stay healthy all year which he has never been able to do and you should take advantage of that. Milledge is a very good prospect but he is still a few years away from even making the bigs.

Reed will be a very good hitter and I'm not sure you can be in a better spot in the line up (after Ichiro and before Beltre/Sexson). On Prince, he is almost ready for the bigs and the kid can flat out mash. I'd endorse taking this side even more if you needed a 1B for the future.

In other words, the old fashioned saying applies ... "buy low, sell high". Drew is the highest I think he will be, where as Reed and Prince have no where to go but up.

That's a definite pass for me... the point of selling high is to get value. You're not getting value here for JD Drew. The guy is an absolute stud. .300/.430 OBP, killer OPS, 30 HR, 100 RBI, 110+ R, AND he can steal 20 bags, if they let him loose. He's the all around package, and can play CF or RF. Most rookies take 1-2 years to really be good, and Prince is blocked by Overbay. Reed is a nice player, but nothing special. Lastings has a lot of talent, and a place to play in the OF very soon. Not even close IMO :-t
