Trade frenzy

Postby Frinkinator » Mon Feb 03, 2003 12:50 pm

NL Only 4x4 standard Roto.

I have been offered Brian Lawrence ($5), Scott Stewart ($5), Bobby Hill ($5), Marlon Byrd ($5) and Daryle Ward ($3)
for
Adam Dunn ($5).

If I pull the trigger, I will fill several needed roster spots with low salry players who have very high upside. This iwll allow me to fill my few remaining slots with studs like Sosa, Bonds, Thome, Vlade, etc.

Who would make this trade and why?

I wouldn't make this trade because I would feel so bad for the other owner...ask for his first born son too.
YES DO IT!

I think you have to do it just based the the potential. Dunn will be great, but so might Hill. Lawrence, Stewart, Byrd, and Ward could all be very solid.

Then if you can add Vlad and another stud, it would be well worth it.

I am sorry, I only told you to do it and didn't answer your "why" part of the question, well here goes.
Dunn is going to be good, but he isn't the next Babe Ruth either, he will be a top offensive player within a few years. Bobby Hill has a huge amount of potential too, and will be a top 3 second basemen in the league about the same time Dunn is one of the very top players. Lawrence's value is already three times what you would be paying him this year and he will only get better. Stewart is young and will be the closer this year, and maybe even the next couple depending on how he does. Byrd is going to be great player with 25-25 potential...he alone MAY have a better value then Dunn down the road. Finally, Daryl Ward, well he's won't give you much, but might be worth keeping at such a low price

from the outside looking in it looks to me like this guy is trying to throw out his trash and bring in a Diamond. I wouldn't do this deal. I bet you most of those guys he will dump back into the draft, if not all.

lawrence is a nice value........
BUT... daryl ward sucks , he couldnt hit in houston why would he hit in la?

i love byrd, but he hasnt hit the majors yet so you never know what he could do.

stewart is NOT gonna go into spring with closer job, dan smith might comeaway with it.

hill will prolly start in triple-a

so i would tell this guy to bugger off =)

Don't do it.

I agree with Trevisc here - he's dupming players he'll cut anyway. I LOVE Dunn and as indicated above, Hill and Byrd are unproven, Ward sucks and you probably will get a chance at Lawrence in the draft.

Tell him no - then offer him all your planned unprotected players for Byrd and Hill .. :-)

I wouldn't do it either. While that is a nice collection of young talent none of them are proven. Most of them will go for about the same price in the auctin while Dunn is certainly close to a $20 player. You are not getting any real values there.

it definately looks like hes trying to pawn off guys he wont keep to upgrade somewhere else. Dunn is a great bargain at $5 so id stay their and set your eyes on Lawerence and Hill in the draft
