GET LESTER & BUMGARNER? UPDATED??? WHIR

Postby Seanyfever » Mon Apr 25, 2011 2:04 am

I threw this deal out abotua week ago, and I got a mixed review in terms of taking it...... I am still somewhat on the fence..... I guess I am on that fence because I am putting this out there. The following deal was put out to me:

I GET: J. Lester and M. Bumgarner
I GIVE: B. Wilson, M. Pineda, and G. Beckham


I am covetting Lester because he will set me up to compete against a manager strong at pitching. My offense will take case of the other side I believe. However, I am deep in my roster, and Longoria and Hamilton injuries are hopefully the beginning and end. I am trying to get something of a third player added or a bit of upgrade on Bumgaraner, but there may be enough name in him, I can trade him to another manager.

Closers were an issue, but I have added Boggs and Perez since we last talked. I grabbed Bogss on waivers dropping Frnaklin, and I traded A. Sanchez on high of his near no hitter for Chris Perez.

Thoughts on this trade????

No question. Pineda will have an innings cap, you are deeper at closer than most so losing Wilson who has looked shaky is worth it. Pedroia makes Beckham easy to move too, and Lester makes an already great staff even more sick.

I definitely think that it is a good trade for you...Lester will without a doubt get you a more than favorable return, and Bumgarner may definitely turn it around (although I am not a huge fan). Still, losing Pineda is not something I would worry about as he is young and volatile, and Beckham can be considered expendable as well...Brian Wilson may be a slight hit to your RP but with the Boggs move (which I love, cuz I did the same thing) and the Perez move you're in fine shape...I deifnitely say you win here. Lester is the biggest piece to this and I'd feel confident in making this move, and the risk on Bumgarner is worth it; he pitched very well towards the end of last year. Hope this helps a little bit, good luck! :-)

Do this trade in a heartbeat unless you're worried about your MI. Try to get someone else besides Madison though, he's flailing.

I like this deal for you. Your selling high on Pineidas great start from here i feel like its gonna be downhill for him. As stated above you have alot of closers so giving away Bweezy wont hurt you that much.

Go for it. I really like this trade for you. u are so deep at relief that losing wilson wont hurt u much. Pineda is a nice young pitcher, but so is bumgardner, and without at least a few seasons under the belt its hard to judge pitchers and how well theyll hold up over time. i consider pineda-bumgardner a push. so the trade breaks down to a closer and a back up 2B on ur team for an Ace on a good lineup and id take that to the bank.
