I'm considering offering Ryan Howard and Daniel Hudson for Pedro Alvarez and Tommy Hanson.

Starting Pitching is definitely my strong point, and yes, I do realize I have 1/0 closers. I subscribe to the "don't pay for saves AT ALL" theory and pick them up as the season goes along through free agency or throw ins to trades. I won the championship last year so I'm willing to take a short term hit between Howard-Alvarez because I think their performance arcs will cross by next season and it will be a plus going forward. Hanson-Hudson would be a win for me, but also moreso insurance in case Alvarez tanks.

What do you guys think?

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

In my opinion I woud not do the trade...the difference in loss between howard and alvarez is greater than hanson hudson...
I not only agree with your theory on closers , I also expand it a bit to pitchers...

hope that helps a bit

can you look at mine as I need a RP ... lol

I'd keep the Howard side. Howard is still the best player in the deal at least in the short run. Hanson is an upgrade over Hudson, but Alvarez is no sure thing to break out especially when he strikes out a good deal.

I would not make this trade. You are not getting enough in return for the downgrade from Howard to Alvarez. As stated before, Alvarez is no sure thing and Howard is a low first/high 2nd rounder with a few more expected good seasons left. I'm not sure if I would do this trade even if you were getting King Felix (or someone similar) instead of Hanson

Looks almost like a fair-ish deal to me, but if you're in win-now-mode, might aswell hang on to the best player/sure thing in howard.... I could see if you were in rebuild mode, but if you won it all last year, I assume you aren't.


help with mine?
