Jay Bruce trade question

Postby celtics464 » Fri Feb 15, 2008 9:09 pm

I have been offered Bruce and Manny Ramirez for Ichiro and Hughes. Should I accept or decline? My team is pretty much well rounded so is Bruce going to be good enough to warrant making this trade?

This is close. I have Ichiro ranked slightly above Manny and Hughes ranked slightly above Bruce. Fairly even deal though.

Can you post the rest of your roster?

with manny in decline and most likely the red sox declining his 09 option, manny could be playing elsewhere next season (no more gaugy rbi or run totals), id say stay put with this trade.

I'd do this. In a H2H I like Manny more than Ichiro, and Bruce slightly over Hughes because of his power potential.

I would stay put. I think Manny would be frustating to own unless he was a bargain. He's missed 30 each of the last 2 seasons. Ichiro has missed 16 in 7MLB seasons and his stats are showing no decline. Overall I think Manny could outperform Ichiro, but Manny seems to risky for me in a dynasty.

I do like Bruce more than Hughes, but that's very debateable. I'm mostly picking the hitter since theoretically he's safer, but Hughes should be very good.

This is definitely a tough choice. I'm going to try and get Hughes for Bruce straight up. Maybe throw someone else in who I can't keep. I definitely want Bruce though. I averaged about 6th in offense last year with this team. Ichiro carries me in average and definitely helps in the SB department so I'm reluctant to give him up.

Manny is playing for a contract. Call it a hunch, but he suffers no "August injury" that causes him to miss 30 games.
