Trade Bay/Storen for Markakis? WHIR

Postby Boyakasha » Tue Apr 26, 2011 9:02 am

I was offered Nick Markakis for Jason Bay and Drew Storen. Should I take it? I already have 2 Orioles on my offense, if you think that's important.
Thanks!

14 team H2H, 5x5 with OPS instead of AVG:

C: Matt Wieters
1B: Adrian Gonzalez
2B: Brian Roberts
3B: Aramis Ramirez
SS: Elvis Andrus
OF: Carl Crawford, Lance Berkman, Alfonso Soriano
Util: Justin Morneau
Bench: Jason Bay

SP: Tim Lincecum, Francisco Liriano, Shaun Marcum
RP: Huston Street, Drew Storen
P: Mitchell Boggs, Kyle Farnsworth, Ryan Dempster, Gio Gonzalez, Travis Wood

No.
Reasons:
Markakis is a 15ish hr, 5 SB guy who bats for average. So at his best, he's borderline. Yet he's not doing well. He's worthless. Bay or Storen (for usefulness) is better than him. And he wants both?! Oh, and 3 Orioles (bad team) is bad.

Bay for Markakis- rip
Storen for Markakis- rip
Both for him?! Ha!
I love mock drafts.

I like Bay's potential to produce more then the safer bet in Markakis. Throwing in Storen puts this one over the top against you.

Markakis is a guy i wouldn't even waste a waiver claim on right now let alone trade someone for him. Unless your league heavily weighs singles i would stay away....

Do it before the other guy changes his mind. Bays not going to be the 2009 version but should be alright as the Mets' offense is looking good right now. Storen is going to be good.

Not sure I'd trade either of them for Markakis straight up. Both makes this an insta-reject.
