Cargo and Upton

Postby jerklin » Tue May 03, 2011 10:35 am

Hey everyone. Looking for some advice on a trade offer.

Send Justin Upton, Ari OF from OF to Mantooth
Send Shaun Marcum, Mil SP from SP to Mantooth
Receive Carlos Gonzalez, Col OF from Mantooth to Bench
Receive Adam Lind, Tor DH from Mantooth to Bench

I need power, so RBI/HR and I'm fine everywhere else offensively.

I'm worried about Cargo under performing, but hey, that could happen to Upton too. What do you think?

Pretty even deal. I think I like the Cargo/Lind side slightly better, so my inclination is to say make the trade.

Should I give Hamilton for Reyes? Please help with this one:

What does your pitching staff look like? Not sure I would want to be giving up Marcum for Lind.

Looking at your staff, I don't like this deal for you. Marcum could easily end up being your ace.

Good point. I'm also worried about Lind posting a low average and being very streaky. With him hitting as a DH it also reduces his flexibility a lot. I'm receiving a lot of interest in Upton so I may look elsewhere.

Thanks!
