Which trade to make

Postby zpoole » Fri Feb 25, 2011 12:42 am

Was just offered two trades to consider by the same team

Team A CC and Happ for Team B Jeter and Mariano

Team A Halladay and Furcal for Team B Jeter and David Wright.

I'm Team B, Without seeing my whole team which one would you consider. I'm leaning towards Halladay and Furcal but hate giving up Wright. I was thinking of asking if he would replace Furcal with Alexei Ramirez. Would make me a little happier. I have Lincicum and would love to have that 1,2 punch.

Thanks for the help

I would stay well away from the 2nd trade. I prefer the best bat over the best arm any day (Wright > Lincecum) and you're likely to get better full season production out of Jeter than Furcal. In fact, Jeter is underrated while Furcal would have to sit out every now and then to avoid getting injured.

First trade is dependent on what you need. Sabathia is the best player in the deal, although Jeter/Mo is a wee bit steep.

Thanks for the help.
I just talked to the owner of Longoria And he's interested in doing a trade with my Carlos Gonzalez. I Love Cargo but got him cheap last year and will he repeat? probably, so its a risky trade. He is willing to do it straight up, and everywhere i've looked Longoria has been taken ahead of him and is ranked higher. So now i could have Halladay, Furcal (or Alexei R.) and Longoria for Cargo, Wright, Jeter. This is a Keeper league so I will be trading away 2 top 15 drafted hitters keepers, but i feel that Longoria Halladay are top 7. So i guess another question is, is Longoria a big enough upgrade over Wright in a keeper league? Also if I don't the first deal involving halladay and Wright, should i pull the trigger on Longoria and have him in my INF spot?

Thanks for the help
