Make this trade or not? I am torn... WHIR!

Postby NikeTxGuy » Fri Apr 29, 2011 9:12 pm

A person in my league is really wanting Adrian Gonzalez... but I am telling him that if he wants him, it will take alot to get him.

After going back and forth discussing a possible deal, he stepped up to the plate and offered me the following deal:

MY Adrian Gonzalez for HIS Justin Morneau & Jason Heyward. (This is a 10-Team Keeper League).

He also has said that he would include Leo Nunez, if I include an average player (which I'm thinking BJ Upton would fit the bill... IF i decide to deal him away.)

So all things being considered, if I DO accept this trade, this is what my team would look like:

C - Matt Wieters
1B - Justin Morneau
2B - Neil Walker
3B - Evan Longoria
SS - Hanley Ramirez* (trade pending - involving Quentin, Hart, Andrus & Beckett)
OF - Curtis Granderson
OF - Carlos Gonzalez
OF - Shin-Soo Choo
UT - Ike Davis
UT - Jason Heyward
BN - Peter Bourjos
BN - Jerry Sands

SP - Felix Hernandez
SP - Josh Johnson
SP - Tim Lincecum
SP - James Shields
SP - Alexi Ogando
SP - Hiroki Kuroda
SP - Ian Kennedy

RP - Leo Nunez
RP - Francisco Cordero
RP - Jordan Walden
RP - Sean Marshall

If i DO NOT accept the deal and decide to keep Adrian Gonzalez, this is what my team would look like:

C - Matt Wieters
1B - Adrian Gonzalez
2B - Neil Walker
3B - Evan Longoria
SS - Hanley Ramirez* (trade pending - involving Quentin, Hart, Andrus & Beckett)
OF - Curtis Granderson
OF - Carlos Gonzalez
OF - Shin-Soo Choo
UT - Ike Davis
UT - B.J. Upton
BN - Peter Bourjos
BN - Jerry Sands

SP - Felix Hernandez
SP - Josh Johnson
SP - Tim Lincecum
SP - James Shields
SP - Alexi Ogando
SP - Hiroki Kuroda
SP - Ian Kennedy

RP - Francisco Cordero
RP - Jordan Walden
RP - Sean Marshall

With the ONLY weakness being in relief pitching.

I feel like you don't need to make this trade if you choose not to. I am not sure about this trade I like Heyward's upside and his youth, if you trade Upton you do get a closer that you can use. But between Gonzalez and Morneau I'd rather have Gonzalez. I wouldn't do this trade unless you feel Heyward and Nunez are really worth it.

I don't think I take the trade if I'm you. You need something a degree above Heyward to go from Gonzalez --> Morneau IMO. What's the keeper parameters? (how many keepers allowed?).

yea i wouldnt do it either. just cause idk about morneaus injury history. he was out basically all last season and that was scary. plus his field isnt all that great for hitters while gonzales should light it up around that pesky pole in boston. i like heyward but hes not that great of an upgrade to upton

I think I would do that. Morneau is going to get alot better. I think power is going to be a issue for Agonz for about the whole 1st half.

But I don't get your 2nd part, you get Nunez which is great, but then you say you throw in an average player. Upton is not an avg player. Try Sands or just leave that part out.

I think you can get a lot more from Adrian Gonzlalez. He's just begining to heat up.
