Did I make a good deal

Postby Roger LaFrancois » Sat May 09, 2009 11:03 am

I think I did, just need to sanity check it.

My roster before trade
C: Napoli
1B: Pujols
2B: Weeks
SS: Theriot
3B: Reynolds
OF: Holliday, Rios, Abreau
Util: Swisher
BN: Wieters, Sandoval, Alexei, Uggla, Fukudome

SP: Johan Santana, Greinke, Buehrle, Oswalt, Laskey (DL), Nolasco
RP: Downs, Gonzales

Deal: I give Swisher, Weeks, Oswalt for Dustin Pedroia
Reasoning: Lineup is short on studs. I am strong in SP and can cover for Oswalt with Laskey off DL, I can cover for Swisher with Wieters call up. Also Konerko is available on WW. I want to open a spot on roster that is flexible to scrounge saves as positions open up.

I think it is close, but you gave up too much.

Pedroia is a definite upgrade over Weeks, but giving up Oswalt and Swisher is too much to give up. Rather than getting a "stud" where you don't necessarily need one, you should have made a smaller scale deal for a closer.
I never smile if I can help it.... Showing one's teeth is a submission signal in primates. When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life.
