Which trade do you prefer? WHIR as always

Postby mzkp54 » Mon Apr 25, 2011 4:27 pm

I was offered 2 trades today. I really need to upgrade my pitching, as my offense is dominating every week but I'm finishing 5-5 because of my pitching. My team is in my sig.

Trade 1: I get Mat Latos for Berkman and Bourn
Trade 2: I get Latos and Cain for Bautista

For trade 1, I could get Cain instead of Latos
For trade 2, I may throw in one of my less good pitchers and try and get Neil Walker to fill in at 3B


They both improve my pitching. Which do you think is better value?

leave a link and I'll help you out.

His roster, if you need it:
C- Hundley
1- Fielder
2- B Roberts
3- N Walker
SS- Tulo
OF- Ichiro
OF- Wells
OF- Francoeur
U- Ortiz
U- Brantley
B- Betemit
DL- Hart

SP- Lee, CC, Latos, Cain, Marcum, Garcia, Narveson, Moseley, Hudson
RP- Nunez, Rauch, Farnsworth
DL- Lidge

Trade #1 I wouldn't do for sure. Bourn is more valuable than Latos with his SBs and though I don't think Berkman keeps it up, he's still got some value.

Trade #2 is more even in my mind, but I still think Bautista can probably land you a better ace as opposed to two decent pitchers. I saw Latos dropped by quite a few teams early and no one is screaming to pick him up.

Would you like trade 1 with Fuld instead of Bourn? I also have alot of speed on my team so I can spare some

I don't really like either, but the 2nd is a better option IMO. I think you can do better as well

Call me crazy, but I actually like trade 1. I don't see either Berkman or Bourn keeping it up, and Latos's upside is worth getting.

if you can get neil walker without giving up too much in the deal, i'd say go for #2.

I agree. I really think option 1 is a steal.

Number 1 is a much better deal for you, but I would not consider it a great value deal.

I'm not a Latos fan but if you are willing to deal for him I'd favor deal #1. I avoided Bautista in drafts this year thinking he was a one year wonder but so far he's backing up the hype from last season. Berkman is a classic sell high case.
