Prospects offered for my ARod - Talks revived.

Postby powenM » Mon May 07, 2007 6:39 pm

Again Im also posting this thread here because u guys know the best when it comes to prospects/youngsters!

U may recall I posted earlier about this but it didnt go anywhere as the guy refused to involve his top prospects in the deal(AGordon & DYoung)

Former Thread:
http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... p?t=260664

He has since traded AGordon for DiceK

Now after a month or so he sends me this email:

"If I were to revive the A-rod talks, out of everyone excluding Delmon Young, what package would you want put together for A-rod? Just curious where you currently stand."

I currently am in 5th place in this 20team Dynasty League but lack serious offensive depth(if ARod aint going Im in trouble) and possibly another starter(ala PHughes maybe?)

Below is mine and his team. Do u think theres a possible deal(Without Delmon involved?) keep in mind if a get more players back then i send I'll have to cut certain players - so who should I drop?

I don't see anyone on his team that is worth giving up the best player in baseball. I'd understand if A-Rod was on his last leg but you have to figure he has at LEAST 5 amazing seasons left at the 3B position.

As far as guys he has worth a blockbuster deal, I think Delmon, Jason Bay, "maybe" Markakis, Zumaya, and DiceK (which he probably won't part with). None of those guys are worth giving up A-Rod in my opinion.

But hey, what do I know? lol

I agree with kbarre here.

I just don't see a fit. If you had to do something, I'd want at least Gonzalez and Bay from him. :*)

I always live and die by the philosophy that I want to get the best player involved in ANY trade I execute.

In this situation, you'd bet getting a lot of "ifs" and also he'd be getting the best player in the deal. That goes against everything I ever wish in a trade.

It sounds like he wants to give up some young guys with plenty of hype to land a perennial all-star and stud for the next 5-10 years. A-Rod ain't close to done. Also, who's to say that when A-Rod moves over to Boston next season he won't play SS again?

I think he'll have dual eligibility quickly next season...maybe that's just me, but I can see it coming.

I agree with everyone else...I'd want something like Bay, Drew, Markakis, and Hughes, but that realistically doesn't help your offense that much.
Drop Sweeney or trade Iannetta for a 1B. If you're hurting for offense you shouldn't roll with a blank at one of the premium power positions...
