Counter Offer: Braun for The Freak? WHIR

Postby clarkb » Thu Mar 24, 2011 11:51 am

Autodraft league and I didn't get my first pitcher until the 12 round! I need pitching.

Original Proposed trade:

I get: Tim Lincecum (SP), Neftali Feliz (RP), Torii Hunter (OF)
I give: Ryan Braun (OF), Ricky Weeks (2B), Shaun Marcum (SP)

Counter offer:
I get: Tim Lincecum (SP), Mariano Rivera (RP), Torii Hunter (OF)
I give: Ryan Braun (OF), Ricky Weeks (2B), John Danks (SP)

Am I still giving up too much?

Thanks in advance and I am happy to return the favor.

I don't like it. Trade away one of Phillips or Weeks for a Hamels-type.

I think that you are giving up too much.

I do not like it...giving up a stud hitter like Braun for Timmy is not worth it in itself. equally good hitter is always more valuable than the pitcher. Braun is a clear 1st round option whereas I stick Timmy in the 2nd round. Pitchers only pitch every 5 or so games and are more prone to injury than hitters. I am not sure I would deal Braun for Halladay either and he is the most consistent SP there is.

Try to deal Weeks away for Hanson, Kershaw, Price, Hamels or something similar.

Help please...
