Did I just make a great trade, or F up bad?

Postby maasa77 » Thu Apr 28, 2011 2:09 am

So i just made a trade in a 12 person H2H league.

I gave up Adrian Gonzalez, Geovanny Soto, Wade Davis (lol), and Clay Bucholtz for......

Dan Haren, Mark Reynolds, Michael Pineda, and Carlos Santana.

I know it seems like I got a great deal but reynolds is a strike out king and off to a terrible start as well as Santana. I know both their histories so thats why i pulled the trigger. Would you do that trade if you were me? At least i know one thing for sure....Haren is going to produce.

I would say the deal was fair-ish, but you sold really heavily on a-gone. He's batting well, but he is going to go on a tear soon, his power is too good to be so quiet. I like davis, he's developing quickly into a legit SP, but I'm also really high on pineda and haren(obviously), so that's good pitching wise.

I really, really dislike reynolds. Just that. Santa will get better, but he's no a-gon.


So If I were you I wouldn't have made the trade, but, I wouldn't say you got robbed.

I like it. Adrian is the best guy in the deal for sure but you got the 2,3,4 and 6th best players in the deal, and if somehow Adrian doesn't put up huge numbers, you make out like a bandit. Don't have any regrets here.
