I was offered Johan Santana & Rickie Weeks for Felix. With Roberts hurt and prone for getting hurt, I think this is a good deal since Weeks is looking good and Johan, though roughed up recently, is still legit.
What do you think?? My roster is below. Any help appreciated and leave your link, I'll help where I can.
C Yadier Molina 1B Ryan Howard 2B Alberto Callaspo 3B Kevin Youkilis SS Yunel Escobar OF Carlos Lee OF Alfonso Soriano OF Magglio Ordonez Util Franklin Gutierrez (OF) Util Johnny Damon (OF) BN Kevin Kouzmanoff (3B)
DL Brian Roberts (2B), Carlos Beltran (OF)
SP Felix Hernandez SP Matt Garza RP Mariano Rivera RP Carlos Marmol P Ben Sheets P Rich Harden P Mat Latos P Fausto Carmona BN Derek Lowe BN Kyle Lohse
Keep Felix. As it stands right now hes the best player in the deal and I just can't see the worth. Johan isn't the same pitcher he used to be, and talk about injury prone with Roberts? Weeks is 10times as injury proned as Roberts is. Look at Brian's career stats, since he got a regular starting gig he has dipped below 600ABs twice, 2005-561 and 2006-563, other then that hes never been under 610, far from injury prone. Id take Felix and Roberts over Johan and Weeks any day.
If ur gonna talk about injury concerns with roberts, then why would u want weeks. Weeks will last you a couple more "weeks" (no pun intended) and johan will not touch felix this year. Ride it out, and hit the FA wire for a 2b for now. HELP? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=407895
santana's numbers have been fading the last few years, and as others have said weeks is injury prone as well. It sounds to me like you are in panic mode right now, any time you enter a situation feeling like your hand has been forced, you are going to come up on the losing end of the trade. Be patient and either wait for a good trade opportunity or hit the WW
