Try for Haren or Cliff Lee? WHIR

Postby footballisbetter.com » Mon Apr 11, 2011 10:05 am

I have been going back and forth with this owner. He needs closers and I need a solid starter. I was thinking about countering with the following 2 offers. Which one would you prefer?

I give Paplebon and F Cordero for Cliff Lee

or

I give Marmol for Haren

Either of those trades would work under the salary cap, but I don't think we could swap anything out.

Here is my staff: (start 9, any combo)
Lester, Hellickson, Kuroda, C Lewis, P Hughes, Britton
Marmol, Paplebon, F Cordero, Hanrahan, Franklin, Contreras

I would rather get Lee plus I think you keep the best closer in Marmol.

The deal for Lee is the better one for you... you're getting a superior pitcher and giving up lesser closers in return.

What if I had to give up Marmol and either Paplebon or Cordero for C Lee?

Would that still be the better deal for me?

IF you have to give up mamol and papelbon then I do not like the deal as much. Lee is going to be awesome but 2 studs may be too much to give up. Cordero doesn't do much for me so I like the 1st deal if you can get it.

help me?

I agree that getting Lee should be your first choice, if possible. If you can give Paps and Cord to get him, I would do it. Like the other poster, I don't like giving up Marmol.

I am also fearful of Haren's 1st/2nd half splits from last year. Marmol for Haren is fair, but do the Lee deal if you can make it without including Marmol.

Both of those deals are awesome. Are they on the table or are you planning on offering them? I don't know if either of those deals would even be accepted.
