Was this a fair trade at the time?

Postby Instant Classic » Thu May 31, 2007 8:05 pm

Would you have traded away chase utley for brett myers 3 WEEKS INTO THE SEASON, IGNORING how both of them performed after the trade was made? Was it a fair trade AT THE TIME?

Utley was batting 230 with 3 HR and 9RBIs and was struggling at the time.

Myers was the #1 starter for Philly before the season started but was demoted to relief prior to the trade and was 0-2 with an ERA of over 8.

No. Utley is a first round pick while Myers is 6-7th.

It's a bad trade regardless of when it was done.

No, I wouldn't have. Three weeks is too small a sample size to make any accurate conclusions, and from a sheer value standpoint, this trade was abysmal.

The reason why I ask is because I proposed a trade of Penny for Ichiro and after it went through, the commish of my league says it's an unfair trade. So I bring up this trade he made 3 weeks into the season and says it is a fair trade at the time because Utley was struggling and ranked really low at the time and he was trading the #1 starter for Philly even though he got demoted to relief.

#1 starter on a team means nothing value wise. I would be the happiest guy in fantasy if I could've traded Gil Meche, the #1 starter on KC, for Utley.
