Upton for Quentin

Postby LOS_METS » Tue Mar 22, 2011 11:54 am

I was offered B.J. Upton for Carlos Quentin. While I like Upton's speed (I don't have much speed on my roster) and moderate power his k's and low batting avg. is something to be weary about, especially with the loss of carl crawford in the lineup as he won't be getting as many fastballs. I like Quentin's power numbers, but I have A-Rod and A-Gonz and Jayson Werth in my line up so power isn't really a necessity. Would you guys pull the trigger on this trade?

I'd make the deal. BJ's potential is well worth dealing Quentin for him, IMO.

Have to agree. Upton has a lot of upside and if that BA goes up, Upton's value will sky rocket. I wouldn't worry about the lineup change at all.
