Russel Martin for Jason Werth? WHIR

Postby TrippySG » Fri Apr 15, 2011 10:45 am

So I have Russel Martin and Victor Martinez, and since Mauer landed on the DL I would like to see if I could work out a trade with his owner. Is this a decent return and is it fair to someone who has lost their #1 pick to injury? I know, I know....Russel Martin has not been projected to be this productive, but he is playing pretty well in a really easy park to hit in, so well the Yankees are entertaining the notion of trading Jesus Montero. I personally dont put that much the Werth hype, I liked him 2 yrs ago when I could get him as my 2nd OF but picking him in the first 5-6 rds, no way. But this is a way I could improve my OF and help out someone that needs an option.

Some notable players on his roster:
Pujols
M. Young
D. Jeter
Werth
Ichiro
Granderson
Lincecum
Verlander
A. Soriano
Konerko

And my roster:
Team 1:
H2H, 10 Team, 4Keepers, 5X5
C: Russel Martin
1B: Miguel Cabrera
2B: Ian Kinsler
3B: Ryan Zimmerman
SS: Evis Andrus
OF: Alex Rios
OF: Hunter Pence
OF: Mike Stanton
Util: Victor Martinez
Util: David Ortiz
BN: Juan Uribe
BN: Sam Fuld
BN: Maicer Izturis (3B right now)
BN: Angel Pagan
DL: Dominic Brown

SP: Ubaldo Jiminez
SP: Francisco Liriano
SP: Wandy Rodriguez
SP: James Shields
SP: CJ Wilson
SP: Jorge De La Rosa
SP: Jair Jurrjens
SP: Max Scherzer
RP: Jose Valverde
RP: Craig Kimbrel
RP: Huston Street
RP: Johnny Venters

I'd make that trade in a heartbeat, although I'd be shocked if the other owner goes for it. Thanks for the help on mine.

I mean, u could try it but I doubt he goes for it. Catcher isn't an amazingly productive position for most teams so if I were him I'd just hope for the best on Mauer and play the ww... in a 10 team there's bound to be at least 1 or 2 servicable c out there... even a Rod Barajas would do. But if he takes the deal u win big. Thnx for the help on mine.

I would never make that deal if I were him, so if you can drug him/blackmail him into doing it, more power to ya. Go for it. Thanks for mine.

He's not gonna bite on that. You could try for Grandy, but he may not even do that. I think getting Grandy would be pretty fair trade, though.

Absolutely do it, when Zim comes back thats going no a nice situation in Was for once, and you def dont need martin. I mean Vmart will get 100 more AB in Det b.c. of his 1B play on off days. Granted, werth wont be nearly as good this year but he'll still rake compared to martin. hit it

Martin for Werth straight up is not going to happen.
I would try to package him with Pagan, who is just riding your bench anyway.... hes basically Rios with no power and half the rbi.
Or target Verlander and try to package Martin with Liriano, Scherz or DLR... he might bite i hes desperate enough.



btw thanks for your help in mine ;-D

Dude would be a fool to take that trade. You might also piss of some other owners in your league if the guy does bite. Would it be worth it for you? Hell yes. Is it even possible? Probably not.
