Masterson and Francour for Crawford

Postby ovdivad » Wed May 04, 2011 2:54 am

My Team:

McCann, Brian C - ATL
Pujols, Albert 1B,CI - STL
Pedroia, Dustin 2B,MI - BOS
Beltre, Adrian 3B,CI - TEX
Rollins, Jimmy SS,MI - PHI
Wallace, Brett 1B,CI - HOU
Uggla, Dan 2B,MI - ATL
Crawford, Carl OF - BOS
Gomes, Jonny OF - CIN
Hunter, Torii OF - LAA
Kemp, Matt OF - LAD
Rasmus, Colby OF - STL
Coghlan, Chris OF – FLA

Anderson, Brett P - OAK
Bell, Heath P - SD
Chen, Bruce P - KC
Harang, Aaron P - SD
Jackson, Edwin P - CHW
Kimbrel, Craig P - ATL
Lohse, Kyle P - STL
Oswalt, Roy P - PHI
Sabathia, CC P - NYY
Verlander, Justin P - DET


My question is should I trade Crawford for Masterson and Francoeur?? Masterson and Francoeur is doing good right now but they are both on teams that should not be doing well. Crawford is getting back to his old self now.

Should I make this trade? and if I should trade, which pitcher should I drop? Should I try to make other trades?

I'm in a ROTO. I'm in 7th place in an 8 team league.

It's a two for one deal? And you don't have to drop anyone else?

Crawford's starting to pick up now and May could still be his month to own.

You're right about Masterson and Francouer being on a team that shouldn't be doing well, so your solution may be a quick fix but may be not worth it in the long run.

I'm sorry but you are talking about trading a top 5 pick for two pre season WW picks.

If I saw this trade I would veto it in a second. No way. No way.

Masterson comes back to earth a little and Francour just isn't a good hitter for a whole season. No way.

If you trade Crawford for those two, then you deserve to be slapped. Don't do this trade.

This would be a bad return for Crawford. The other owner is trying to capitalize on hot starts from those two players in exchange for a first round talent like Crawford - don't fall for it.

Crawford hitting @ the bottom of the Boston lineup is helping him in more ways than one.

He's finding his rhythm again. Don't even consider this trade.

Yeah thats what I'm thinking too, but we are only playing till the all-star game. I think I can get a good amount of points before they cool off. Still a bad trade?

I'm in last place place now. Who should I try to get rid instead??
