Ok, Let Me Try One More Time

Postby mm92280 » Mon May 20, 2002 3:06 pm

still looking to trade pitching for hitting, so I'm looking for thoughts on this one:

I give: Wood, Clemens, Uribe, Corey Patterson

I get: Jeter, Magglio Ordonez, Woody Williams, Jason Schmidt.

Remind me: what's your pitching staff look like? Can you survive losing Wood and Clemens?

Without considering factors such as your standings and needs, I'd rather have the side you're giving up. I think you lose more in pitching than you gain in hitting. What does the other guy's rotation look like?

His rotation:

Lowe
Lawrence
Dempster
Ritchie
Mulder
Woody Williams
Schmidt
Garland
Benson
Hermanson

I kinda thought I would be giving up too much, but people in my league seem to think Magglio is worth an ace like a Wood or a Vasquez, and won't trade for anything less.

I've thought about making this alternate offer to a different owner:

I give: Wood, Steve Cox, Patterson

I receive: Palmeiro, Larry Walker, and one of his SP (Burkett, Moyer, Pettite, Lilly, Penny, and Park).

hence, why I was asking of people's opinion on Larry Walker.

If Magglio is overvalued (as even great players like he is can be), target someone else. Abreu, Manny, Luis Gonzalez might be available for less than their values now. You could also try rolling the dice on Walker or Floyd.

If Wood can get you Magglio, what would be wrong with either a straight up exchange or Wood/Patterson for Ordonez/Lawrence, or something similar? Or maybe Wood/Clemens/Uribe/Patterson for Jeter/Ordonez/Lowe/Lawrence?
