Ianetta for Pelfrey?

Postby Members Only Jackets » Mon Jan 01, 2007 6:49 pm

Hi

I'm asking this "trade" question in here because it's Minor League based...

I was offered C Ianetta for a young SP prospect...(He wants Garza, Pelfrey or Bailey..I think I'd deal pelfrey first but???)

My Catchers are Varitek and B Molina

My SP's--we keep them all (12 team)


**Pitchers
Cain, Matt SP
Capuano, Chris SP
Haren, Dan SP
Lowe, Derek SP
Penny, Brad SP
Rodriguez, Francisco RP

**Reserve Pitchers

Bailey, Homer SP
Elbert, Scott SP
Gallardo, Yovani SP
Garza, Matt SP
Miller, Andrew M. SP
Pelfrey, Mike SP
Westbrook, Jake SP
Zumaya, Joel SP


thanks ;-D

I think Iannetta is primed to do well already this year. If anyone, I would trade Pelfrey. Both will take a little while to reach their potential (both SPs and catchers seem to take more time than other positions). Iannetta is going to be starting C; Pelfrey is likely but not certainly going to be a starter for the Mets, at least not the entire year--competition there is deep. Both are great keepers, but it's rare to have a keeper-worthy catcher, which I believe Iannetta is.

I would not, however, trade Garza or Bailey. Garza will start for the Twins, and Bailey is probably best of all pitching prospects (besides, perhaps, Hughes).

You've got tons of great pitching already. Varitek's on the way out, Molina's good but not great. C depth is always a rarity, especially with the kind of talent Ianetta has. You've got more than enough SP depth to spare Pelfrey. In fact, I'd guess you have this much depth for exactly this reason, to trade and upgrade elsewhere.

theres no such thing as too much pitching depth.. great pitchers can be used for major trade bait and net u something a lot better then Ianetta..

Seriously. Ianetta is not that great. Where is he going to hit in the Rockies lineup? He'll be lucky to hit 12 homers with a .280 average. You could pick that up off the wire. He's not going to hit high enough to have a solid amount of runs and RBIs, and he can't run. It'll be a few years before he is even a serviceable fantasy option behind the dish. A lot of his stock comes in his above average defense behind the plate and his ability to actually "stick" at the position.
