Young and Vernon

Postby bd3521 » Mon Apr 18, 2005 12:45 am

In a 24 team 40 man roster league I was offered M Young to give up Vernon. I have Izturis at SS and Beltran at CF (baldelli on DL too). So I am currently playing Vernon at DH.

Anyone think I should jump on this?
It's a keeper so I am not sure how good of an option Mike is?
Does his contract run a few more years in Texas?

Here's the scoring...

Scoring for Batting Categories
1B - Singles 1 point
2B - Doubles 2 points
3B - Triples 3 points
BB - Walks (Batters) 0.5 points
CS - Caught Stealing -1 point
DPT - Double Plays Turned 1 point
E - Errors -2 points
GDP - Ground Into Double Plays -1 point
HR - Home Runs 4 points
OFAST - OF Assists 2 points
PBC - Passed Balls by Catcher -2 points
R - Runs 1 point
RBI - Runs Batted In 1 point
SB - Stolen Bases 1 point
TPT - Triple Plays Turned 3 points

I would do the trade, Young is only getting better in Texas. His K totals are decreasing and walk totals increasing. He's becoming an incredible hitter. ;-D

Yeah sorry about that. This is the first time I received a decent/fair trade offer in this 24 team dynasty. I was amazed

I would do it...Young will be in Texas for about the next 4 years, I wouldn't be surprised if he plays there his entire career. Young will get you at least 200 hits and the added points for doubles and triples definitely make him worth it.

Awesome trade for you. ;-D

On a side note, the FA list on a 24 team league must be atrocious, so you're lucky someones giving you a great shortstop for an outfielder, especially when ignoring position, Young is better.
