Trade Ethier for Latos?

Postby dubstar » Tue Apr 05, 2011 12:46 pm

I have just traded Hanson for J Upton/J Zimmerman. Should I turn around and trade Ethier for Latos? Or would that defeat rthe purpose of what I just did? I feel like I am low on power, so maybe I need Ethier. MAybe my staff is good enough?

I'd hold off. Latos scares me this year.

Hells to the no. I would hang tight with Ethier. Latos is scary, as noted above. Too much risk, not enough reward.

Help with my trade? Ichiro and Haren for Hamilton?

In addition to what's already been stated regarding Latos' risks, your SP is fine. Losing Ethier would leave a MAJOR hole in your lineup. Stand pat, and good luck! ;-D
