Barton and Pena for Liriano

Postby Middle Aged Paunch » Mon Jul 30, 2007 8:31 am

4 x 4 AL only league league (rbi, avg, hr, sb, w, sv, era, whip) I have been offered this dynasty keeper trade. All contracts have two years left: Barton $7, Pena $10, Liriano $6. (note, before the final year, we can add years but it adds five dollars per year. ie a two year contract adds $5/yr, a three year contract adds $10/yr, etc...)

Need opinions:

1) Is Pena for real? (I have him on a non-keeper league so I'm a little biased.)

2) Is Barton more than an average 1B?

3) Will Liriano return to his old form?

Thanks

I guess it depends on what you need. If you need the pitching for next season it's not necessarily a bad deal. I would try to deal one or the other with a lesser player. I think Pena is a legit power guy. He won't keep his average this high, but the Rays lineup is only going to get better and he could be a force in the middle of it.

Barton is often compared to Mark Grace, so expect what you will out of that. As for Liriano, he's suppose to be ready for the 2008 season, but he has had arm trouble before so like I said it all depends on what you're in need of next season.

I am in an AL-Only League 5x5 where I traded Richie Sexson & Andy Marte for Liriano. If I were you I would try a trade of Barton with a lesser player that might help (or appear to) the other owner in an attempt to get Liriano
