Teixera/Anderson for Kershaw/Rasmus

Postby mzkp54 » Tue Apr 19, 2011 1:24 am

He offered Hamilton/Cahill for Teixera
***EDIT: Thinking of countering Tex/Anderson for Kershaw/Rasmus- Please leave thoughts on this trade

My team:

C-R Martin
1B- Votto
2B- Zobrist
3B- Bautista
SS- Izturis
OF- Kemp
OF- Rios
OF- Fuld
U- Berkman
U- Teixera
Bench- Bourn, M Stanton

SP- Haren, Hanson, B Anderson, Dempster, Jurrjens, Zimmerman, Wandy, G Floyd
RP- Axford, Cordero, Burnett


His team:
C- Wieters
1B- M Cabrera
2B- G Beckham
3B- Youkilis
SS- S Drew
OF- Ellsbury
OF- Rasmus
OF- A Gordon
U- C Crisp
U- G Sanchez
Bench- R Davis, J Gomes
DL- Hamilton

P- Kershaw, Verlander, Carpenter, Lowe, Lilly, Cahill, Zambrano, Bucholz, Drabek, Ogando, Holland

I think my teams biggest need is probably pitching, which he has alot of. I don't particularly need an OF, but I don't really need Tex as a 1B either. What are your thoughts/ possible counters?

Leave a link and I'll help you out too

I picked up Brett Gardner through Waivers today and dropped Gavin Floyd if that changes anything

I would not do that, even though Hamilton will be good after the AS break...If I were you, I would try something like Rasmus and Verlander for TEx or Rasmus and Kershaw for Tex and some mediocre SP...I just dont trust Hamilton, as he never plays a full season

help, please.

Kinda sounds like a lowball offer even though Hamilton is solid when healthy and Cahill has a good season last yr. I like the idea of Rasmus and Kershaw, but I doubt with an offer like that he is interested in not getting rid of Hamilton

I wouldn't do this either. Hamilton is unlikely to come back from this injury at 100%. Everything I have heard, says that even once healed it will take sometime to get his shoulder back to full strength.

If you need pitching, then look to make a deal for a pitcher. Kershaw or Verlander at the very least.

Keep Tex. If anything, you need a SS. Maybe you could flip Berkman and Izturis for Drew?

I wouldn't do it. Don't trade away Tex just because you "don't need him as a 1B." He's a first round pick because he puts up awesome numbers. The team you're trading to doesn't need him as a 1B either. Try to move some other pieces for a SS upgrade.

Don't let Tex go. Try another way to upgrade at SS.
