Postby Titanic Grizzlie » Tue May 17, 2005 2:47 am

It's 3am and i really need a quick answer to this so can make a decison before this guys wakes up and possibly decides to retract his offer. The other forum is empty. THanks a lot.

here's the trade:

I give Figgins

Do it...just to get Winn out of the lineup it is worth it if for no other reason.

I'd rather have Figgins. GA is fine, but he is not a uniquely talented OF at this point. On the flip side, Figgins steals tons and you can plug him in anyplace depending on matchups.

I'd have to say yes to this trade... a healthy Anderson is pretty much a lock for 80/25/100 with a .300 BA. Figgins might bounce back, and his multi-position eligibility is nice, but he looks like he's turning into a single-category guy.

Also, Iguchi's starting to look like the real deal. I don't think Figgins will beat his value by much when all is said and done.

;-D Adding Anderson means you have to bench Winn. You lose steals there, not to mention you lose them when you disperse Figgins. Doesn't look like you have a 2b replacement anyhow. I'd stay put unless you have a decent option at 2b outside Figgins.

EDIT : Just saw you had Iguchi, so I would probably pull the trigger on this trade if I were you. Your net production increases.

Iguchi and Anderson every day better than Figgins and Winn any day of the week.

I know he is a notorious 2nd half player, but in H2h that does not mean much. And Winn is:

.297 0/11/15 with 4 SBs and a .765 OPS so far.

That is pretty damn awful

Is it close enough to where I should counter and try to get more while at the sam etime risking that i might not be able get this deal again when he wakes up and sees that figgins had another 0'fer.

I could counter with:

Figgins and Sisco

for

Anderson and Urbina


Is it worth the risk though?

I think I'll change my mind and urge you take the deal. Looks as though you need to upgrade the power and production, in which case GA does offer you more overall upside.
