Trading prospects for veterans (incl. Liriano, Pence, Miller

Postby Galt » Mon Apr 23, 2007 5:23 pm

In a league that counts OPS instead of BA, and classifies LF, CF, RF positions, and allows you to keep a player for four years after they lose ROY eligibility (as a late 20th round pick)

How would you rank the following four?

Andrew Miller
Hunter Pence
Carlos Gonzalez
Matt Garza

I have all four of thse guys (along with Morales, Bruce, Rasmus, and Gallardo) and am in the middle of trade discussions. The guy keeps asking for Pence - I think I'd rather part with a pitching prospect and am leaning toward including Miller

Can't really say what I'd be getting b/c someone else in my league reads this site. Suffice the say, the value of what I'm getting is good - I'm not getting prospects in return. I'm trading prospects/keepers (incl. Liriano) for established veterans for my potential keepers. it's just a matter of which prospects I should be trying to make sure I hold

Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

I respectfully disagree:

Gonzalez
Pence
Miller
Garza

I think Pence is more likely to see action this year than Gonzalez, though...

Long Term:

Andrew Miller
Carlos Gonzalez
Hunter Pence
Matt Garza

Pence could be higher, but I really like what Gonzalez has been doing. Miller IMO is a little overrated, but he is the clear number one long term prospect here. I think Pence will get called up this year and produce. I see a base of 15/15 with a good average, and with a ceiling of 30/25. Gonzalez I really like, but I don't know where he is going to play. Arizona has a log jam in OF prospects. They have Quentin, Hairston (though not really a prospect), Upton, Gonzalez, and Young. I think they will trade one of them, and I feel as though Gonzalez will be the odd one out.

You might want to give us the player who you are trading Pence for, and you could PM the guy to me if you would like.
