Trade Rumors

Postby dougbies » Fri May 25, 2007 9:18 am

Why is there not a sticky trade rumor topic yet?
it seems that there is a lot of talk of lidge, ray, or some other players getting traded.

Do you have any other ideas of what other big name players may go by the deadline?

If Atkins were traded to LAA this would kill his value. Going from the extreme hitters park to a big park, a good hitting team to one that doesn't score much... His BA, HR, R and RBI would all take a hit.

You should pray that this doesn't happen. Nightly.

Exactly!!! If there's anyone who can help Atkins, it'll be my man Vlad. LAA runs a lot and Atkins could increase his SB. LAA is a fairly young team and Atkins might fit in there. Playing @ TEX and facing SEA pitching could help.

Just to add on:

Atkins is more of a line drive/gap hitter, so the move shouldn't affect him much at all. He'd be going to a team that would bat him higher in the lineup and, like mentioned before, might protect him with VLAD.
