BJ Upton and Price for Crawford?

Postby pangbones » Tue Apr 26, 2011 9:26 pm

I would get Crawford, Kuroda, and Storen. I give him Upton, Price and Walden. We use OBP and K's for hitters, and we count Losses as a category for pitchers as well. What do you think?

C - Hundley
1B - Votto
2B - Kinsler
SS - A Ramirez
3B - McGehee
OF - Pence, BJ Upton, Quentin
Util - Ortiz, Morneau

Bench - Figgins, Reynolds, Mauer, Jed Lowrie, R Davis

DL - Longoria, Peavy

SP - Lester, Price, Marcum, Pineda, G Floyd
RP - Axford, Hanrahan, Walden

Bench - Richard, J Chacin, Boggs, Nathan

10 Team, 6*6 (OBP and K's for hitters and L's for Pitchers), H2H, Keeper (3 players, at least 1 hitter and 1 pitcher)

I like getting Carl and losing Upton, but Price >>> Kuroda and I like Walden over Storen. Still, closers are fickle. And your other SP are solid. I might see if he would pony up someone a bit better with Kuroda as K's go. If not, I might still do it because I am not a huge Upton guy.

Kuroda is the guy I told him I wanted. I think he's way underrated, and this is why I want to do it. He thinks Kuroda is garbage, I don't think he's that far off from Price. He doesn't rack up K's, but other than that, I think he's solid.

You seem inclined to do it. I sure as heck wouldnt but your mind already seems made up.

It's a defensible trade but I don't think Crawford is enough of an upgrade over BJ Upton to justify giving up Price. Crawford may not run nearly as much now with that much firepower in the Red Sox lineup compared to his TB days. Even if you think Price is overrated (right now he is) you can still receive a bit more in return based on his name alone. Kuroda is the kind of pitcher someone may drop if he has two or three bad starts so you could grab him off waivers eventually later in the year.

Here is my scenario if you don't mind: viewtopic.php?t=428693

thanks for the help with mine.

I would make this trade. You are getting the best player in the trade. I also think Kuroda is undervalued.

Do this trade. If OBP and Ks count in the league, then Crawford should be even more valuable than Upton. Price should enable you to suffer as few losses as possible. Do it!

I'm not getting Price, I'm giving him up. I'm getting Kuroda.
