keeper trade

Postby HOOTIE » Fri Feb 18, 2011 1:51 am

We keep 13, plus 5 minors.
8 teams, so good players in draft (104 kept) 25 of them OF.
With those picks, (#23 and #39), i'm thinking closers or Morrow type sp will be there.
I only kept 2 OF, and i don't see much i like in the pool.
The best 3 are Ellsbury, BJ, Quentin. I traded my 1st already, so i don't pick till the 2nd.
I'm afraid Ellsbury and BJ will be gone.
So i think i'm overpaying a bit with the picks, but i think i need that 3 OF going into the draft.
Btw, i have 3 stud SP i'm keeping minus JJ.
I don't normally overpay, unless i love somebody, or feel i might get left out in the draft.
I'm giving A, receiving B.

Which side do you prefer

A Josh Johnson and a 3rd round pick (#23), and a 5th round pick (#39)

If I'm getting someone I really want as a keeper, draft choices don't usually get in the way. McCutchen is 1 of those guys worth overpaying a bit

I like McCutchen side as well. JJ's injury last year has me a little concerned because back problems never seem to go away completely plus McCutchen is still young and should be a top 15 OF for sometime.

I don't mind McCutcheon side at all.
