Offered J Upton, need quick help!! WHIR

Postby dubstar » Sun Apr 03, 2011 11:53 am

I was offered J Upton/Jurrjens for Hanson. Should I accept, or counter with Shields or J Zimemrman instead of Jurrjens? I am big on Hanson this year, but really like the idea of getting Upton and maybe moving Ethier for another starter at some point. Hitting over pitching right? I would drop Abreu and grab either Drabek or Wood.

Don't think about Jurrjens - he's for the WW - Upton is the centre-piece of this trade and is clearly the best player in this trade...he's a top 10 OF... I would do it in a heartbeat...

and good thinking with moving Ethier- he will have a good name value (overvalued this season)

So should I try to get Shields or Zimmerman instead of Jurjjens, or do it for Jurrjens then hope for the best?

J.Zimmermann- he's an injury-prone but could be a good P to add, so Zimmermann over Shields imho (but they are pretty equal).

bust honestly I would make the deal as fast as I could before the other gus realize his "mistake"
