Ellsbury for Morrow?

Postby cs3 » Sun May 01, 2011 11:29 pm

This is a 6x6 H2H league with no innings limit, counts 5x5 stats + QS and Hits.
Ive been trying to find ways to improve my SP and was just offered this trade.
Morrow + Abreu for Ellsbury.
Rajai Davis is on the wire to replace Ellsbury.
Abreu is really just a throw and id be dropping either him or Moreland to pick up Rajai.
Would also have to drop one of my SP, most likely Beachy.

Does Morrow improve my staff enough, and would Davis replace enough of Ells production to make the trade worthwhile?

C: Buster Posey (C,1B)
1B: Adam Dunn (1B)
2B: Rickie Weeks (2B)
3B: Alex Rodriguez (3B)
SS: Starlin Castro (SS)
OF: Matt Holliday (OF), Jacoby Ellsbury (OF), Carlos Gonzalez (OF)
Util: Curtis Granderson (OF)
BN: Michael Cuddyer (1B,2B,3B,OF), Mitch Moreland (1B,OF)

Starting Pitchers
SP: Roy Halladay (SP), Brandon Beachy (SP), Mat Latos (SP), Shaun Marcum (SP)

I like Morrow, but your SP is fine.
The move makes no sense, since you lose Ellsbury and Beachy.

how much more valuable would you say that Ellsbury is than Davis?
Chacin is the other drop option, although both him and Beachy do carry significant value going forward.

I guess the question turns into which of the following would you prefer:
A) Ellsbury/Beachy/Chacin
B) Davis/Morrow/Beachy
c) Davis/Morrow/Chacin
