Looking to get Adrian??? WHIR

Postby amarlls » Fri Feb 11, 2011 3:38 pm

I think Gonzalez is going to be a stud in Boston and Im looking to get him from a guy. He offered me Adrian and Hughes for my Choo and Jason Heyward?? Probably shouldnt give up this much?? Then he said Scherzer instead of hughes and still dont know. Should I do it with any of these options or should I go after Latos if he bites??

I would try to make the following trade: Gonzalez + Latos for your Heyward, Choo, and Hughes.

This would shore up your corner infield, which I think is weak in comparison to your current OF. You have much better options at OF to fill in the void that Heyward and Choo would leave. I think your SP staff needs some help. I see Latos as being a great #2 SP (like Scherzer, who I would not trade). I don't think Hughes has the same potential that Latos does.

Hes the one with Hughes. and I would substitute Latos for Hughes.. So it would be my Heyward and Choo for his Gonzales and Latos??

I'm sorry, I misread the post.

If the deal comes down to your Heyward and Choo for his Gonzalez and Latos, I would take it.

It helps your SP staff a lot (you get a solid #2 in Latos). And it shores up your corner infield as mentioned above.

I certainly would have no problem with that. To be honest... I would probably go for the offer with Hughes as well. Given your team, I think adding Adrian would be huge, and you have depth in the OF to make the move. Basically, it looks like Adrian is yours... its just a matter of whats the best pitcher you can include in the deal.
Thanks for the advice on mine.

I agree 100% here.
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray
