Trade Offer - yes or no

Postby baegames » Sun May 01, 2011 4:50 pm

AL Only (6 team)

Hunter is currently my 7th best OF in my mind based on the categories.

Betemit would replace Mark Reynolds as my 3b for now. I would not give up on Reynolds.

Thoughts? Is this an awful trade? And I need pitching.

I have been convinced not to trade Kinsler, so I am now considering:

Torii Hunter
(Mark Reynolds)
(Luke Hochevar)

FOR

(Austin Jackson)
Wilson Betemit
Rick Porcello

I think I am going to take that package. In parenthesis are the changes to my starting lineup but not involved in the trade.

I feel like he ought to give you better than Betemit there considering Delmon is on the DL (and abdomen/rib situations make me nervous). I like Anderson, but I think Kinsler alone might be worth more, so he should pony up better than Betemit imo.

I agree. Betemit is a 'sell high' candidate but he doesn't have the history to justify being consider a good pickup. Stay away from Farnsworth unless you're desperate for closers. Get something better in return for Betemit and reconsider.

I think of Kinsler as the more valuable property I am giving up. Is all this worth it for Kinsler, or should I try to get Rick Porcello and Wilson Betemit for Torii Hunter alone. I think I can make that deal. The SP replaces Luke Hochevar.

Yeah I think you gotta get more. If Kinsler stays healthy and plays to his ability, he may be worth more than all the others in this trade combined. Try to do it without giving up Kinsler if you can.......

I think Kinsler will have a monster year plus anderson isnt that good.
You should try and get more.
