Grab Brett Wallace? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon May 02, 2011 2:10 am

I can't drop Moreland or Zi merman because they don't arrive until Tuesday. But should I drop Santos and grab Brett Wallace? I am going to accept a deal that will move Adrian so I'd like some good 1B production.

I wouldn't.
Why you trading your best keeper hitter in AGon?

That deal is:

Adrian, sizemore and chris Perez
For
Hanley, Greinke and kendrys morales

I might be able to substitute walden and Adam LaRoche for perez and morales. Thoughts?

Drop Lowrie. With Hanley and Pedroia you don't need Lowrie and especially if you deal Perez you might want to keep Santos in case he can keep the lead in the closer race in CWS bullpen.

How many years can you keep the above players?

It's your team. Do what you feel is best.
I know if it was my team, i'm not trading AGon.
Perez is a elite closer.
Morales is still not ready.
Greinke is good, but i'm not giving up 2 good bats for him.
Hanley SB have dropped from 50 a year to 30.
His hrs have dropped from 30 to 20.
Last year a fluke year? I'm not buying it.
He had about a 40% GB ratio before last year.
Last year was 51%. It is 60% now. Less fly balls mean less hrs.

Adrian keeper thru 2012
Sizemore keeper thru 2013 (but I probably not because we only keep 6 players and his health and all...)
Hanley keeper thru 2013
Greinke in contract year - but gives me a dominant 1-4 plus Danks as number 5
Morales - contract year

Basically, I get Hnaley for 3 years instead of Adrian for 2.

You get a extra year from Hanley, but imo, AGon is your best bat. When the weather heats up, and he gets more confortable in Boston, i expect lots of hrs/rbis.
You have 2 nice SS already in Alexei and Desmond (10sb).
