Trade that may make another team unbeatable...

Postby NotABigDeal » Thu Jul 02, 2009 1:45 am

I think I have a fairly decent team. My offense is pretty deep and my defense is solid but could use work. My major weaknesses on offense are at 2B and SS. That having been said I got offered Joba Chamberlain and Brian Roberts for Hunter Pence and Ichiro Suzuki. The only problem is this would make the other team insanely dominant while helping me improve my team... Would it be a mistake to make that trade? Just for reference the other kids team would look like this: Miguel Cabrera, Ryan Braun, Mark Teixeira, BJ Upton, Magglio Ordonez, Hunter Pence, Ichiro, JD Drew (Not in order by position.)

I get: Joba Chamberlain - Brian Roberts
I give: Hunter Pence - Ichiro Suzuki

My Team:
C- Wieters
1B- Ryan Howard
2B- Jose Lopez
3B- Evan Longoria
SS- Stephen Drew
OF- Carlos Lee
OF- Ichiro Suzuki
OF- Matt Kemp
Util- Brad Hawpe
BN- Hunter Pence
BN- Bobby Abreu
BN- Aubrey Huff
BN- Felipe Lopez
BN- Chris Iannetta
BN- Adrian Beltre

Pitching:
Justin Verlander
Felix Hernandez
James Shields
Scott Kazmir
Bobby Jenks
Adam Wainwright
Huston Street
Ubaldo Jiminez
Hiroki Kuroda
JP Howell
Leo Nunez
Bobby Seay
Sean West
Manny Parra

I understand this seems like trade advice but it's more about should you trade if it risks making a team super dominant.

if it makes your team better go for it. plus all you listed was his offense, his pitching could be terrible.
