thats a REALLY REALLY interesting trade. I am sure if 10 ppl respond, 5 will lean one way and 5 will lean the other

Personally, I like the Wright/pedroia/hughes side of it. Wright gives u numbers in multiple categories, and truthfully him and longoria are pretty even. Pedroia has the edge over prado, and in that lineup he could have a bigtime year. Lee/hughes, well the advantage def goes to lee, but I don't think by much, him pitching in the NL will def help, but his numbers weren't unbelievable last year, and well hughes took a big step forward last year, if he improves again this year this deal will pay off for you by sticking with wright/ped/hughes

Good luck
help here please

I prefer the Wright/Pedroia/Hughes side. I actually like Wright better than Longoria because of his consistancy (aside from the one down year), and his multi category scoring. Longoria I think is overrated by a slight bit. But either way, yea they are pretty even. Pedroia definitely over Prado. I don't like Lee as much as others, but Hughes should if nothing else get double digit wins and decent amount of K's. If you could give up a lesser player than Pedroia or a lesser pitcher than Hughes, then I would think about it. Otherwise though, id stick with what I got.

I'd take this trade, but I agree that it is very interesting and close.

My thoughts are Longoria is a small upgrade over Wright, even though both are very close. Lee could be a HUGE upgrade over Hughes. I think both will have a good season, but Hughes is not nearly as steady as Lee and I almost never want a pitcher in the AL East. Prado is definitely a big drop from Pedroia, but I feel the difference between Lee and Hughes is greater than the difference between Prado and Pedroia.

Help with mine?

Make this deal. I believe that Longoria will have a very good year - He is still very young. Wright plays on the Mets, who SUCH (even though I am a mets fan), in CITI Field, where it is impossible to hit home runs. I LOVE Pedroia but theres always the chance that he'll get injured again. However, Cliff Lee is a HUGE upgrade over Hughes. Phil Hughes is one of those players where you basically have to flip a coin with every game. If I were you, I'd shake that kids hand.

Plus, there is a lot of headache going on in the Mets organization now, and this will definitely affect the players. The whole Madoff case, no one going to see their games, etc. are all factors that are going to have a direct impact on the morale of each player.

I don't understand why everyone assumes Longoria is better than Wright. Wright had a better year last year, while playing at CITI. Yea he won't hit as many homeruns. But he makes up for it in other areas, especially SB. You can't base your trade on the fact that "I LOVE Pedroia but theres always the chance that he'll get injured again" . I don't think that is more likely to happen than any of these other players getting injured. What if Cliff Lee gets injured again? Also, I don't think pitchers are worth as much as hitters even at the same talent level. In order for me to trade a position player for a pitcher, the pitcher has to be better at pitching than the hitter is at hitting. Totally disagree that Lee is a HUGE upgrade over Hughes. I think Lee has had the majority of his good seasons. I also think Pedroia is a bigger upgrade over Prado than Lee is over Hughes. At the end of the year you will probably see this translated in the numbers. Also, I don't think Wright will be affected by Madoff. He has no reason to be distracted by anything going on with the Mets ownership. Its not like they are calling him for advice and distracting him from his game. Speaking of injuries. 2007 Cliff Lee dealt with injuries, so he is just as likely to get injured (if not more so since I think pitchers are more fragile in general) than is Pedroia. Simply put Pedroia I think is worth more than Cliff Lee by a substantial amount.
