Maggs Ordonez, and Tim Hudson

Postby crazybob60 » Sat Jun 21, 2003 12:13 am

Right now I am pretty stacked at SP (Hudson, Mussina, Pettitte, Lohse, Miller, Vazquez, Clement, and Peavy). I am hurting in the OF, (Sheffield, Burrell, Dye, and Cameron). I am trying to get Maggs. Do you think I should give up Hudson to try and get Maggs??? Am I giving up too much or getting a steal here and do you think Maggs is gonna bust out in the second half?? I know that the A's are a second half team and that is why I am a little bit hesitant on doing this. But what do you guys think???

If you lose Hudson, I don't see your pitching as 'stacked'. Anyway you can package an OF plus Hudson for Maggs + decent SP?

I don't see your pitching staff as "stacked" as it is right now... But yes your OF doesn't look too good... I would trade Hudson for a better guy...
The key to Fantasy Sports is NOT about Sports but rather the "manipulation of numbers" in your favor

I think it's a fair trade. Hudson has been solid this year and has done much better than Maggs, but if you look at what they both did last year then you would think that Magglio is better. Ordonez did much better down the stretch last year, here are his splits:

2001
April .343, 6HR, 20 RBI
May .281, 4 HR,15 RBI
June .320, 3HR, 25 RBI
July .337, 10HR, 25 RBI
August .317 8HR, 24 RBI
September .323, 7HR, 26RBI

Hard to believe he didn't make the all star team last year with those final numbers.

I generally try to trade pitching for hitting, for several reasons. Pitching can be a total crapshoot, as evidenced by Hudson's low-3 ERA and only 5 wins to go with it. Hudson's numbers are very comparable to unknowns like Claudio Vargas (good era and whip, low wins) because he doesn't strike alot of people out but he certianly has plenty of fantasy value. His value lies primarily in WHIP and ERA but the Wins will certainly come. If you can move Hudson for a guy like Magglio who is about to go on a tear, do it before Maggs starts going nuts and his owner won't let him get away.

Why do you even ask questions about decisions that aren't actually on your desk. The guy might just say not interested right away and you'll have wasted this effort thinking about it.

However if you do need an answer, go for it. All-across-the-board stud hitters are harder to get than good pitchers.

Yes, I'd take it. Your OF is a disaster area beyond Sheffield and Cameron.

Man, take it right now. I traded Brown for Maggs recently. Magg should get hot soon.
