Lowrie / Halladay / Zobrist for Braun / Street (WHI)

Postby surista » Fri May 06, 2011 3:44 am

Slight update: Previous trade offer fell through since the other owner now has some DL issues, but he came back with the following offer:
I give: Lowrie / Halladay / Zobrist
I get: Braun / Street

12-team standard 5x5. I'm in first place, but very weak in saves (catching up slowly txs to some waiver wire work but still behind), and weak in RBI and AVG.

This trade leaves me with a hole at 2B, and the waiver wire is pretty grim (Callapso? Beckham?Carroll?). But does shore up RBIs and probably Avg. I am happy with my starting pitching and would run in to inning limits anyway, so I'm fine there.

My team:
Wieters (C)
Butler (1B)
Lowrie (2B/SS)
Longoria (3B)
Reyes (SS)
Quentin (OF)
Cruz (OF)
Zobrist (1B/2B/OF)
Span (OF)
Beltre (Util)
Tabata (OF)
BJ Upton (OF)

Halladay (SP)
Haren (SP)
W.Rodriguez (SP)
Billingsley (SP)
Norris (SP)
Kuroda (SP)
Capps (RP)
E. Sanchez (RP)
Farnsworth (RP)
V. Padilla (RP)
Oliver (RP)
Peavy (DL)

Standings by category:
Runs: 3rd
HR: 3rd
RBI: 6th
SB: 1st
AVG: 6th
W: T1st
SV: 8th
K: T6th
ERA: 3rd

I'd take the deal, but I'm also very partial towards Braun and Street. I have Street in my team and although he dropped a clangger today I think he's got 50 saves in him with the Rockies this season.

I've also been trying to trade for Braun but couldn't work out a deal not to lose too much. He's worth 1.5 outfielders on his own at the moment.

I don't think the deal is fantastic but you could take it and try your luck on the waiver for 2B.

I think you need to take Lowrie or Zobrist out of the deal OR offer a lesser SP than Halladay. I think you're giving up too much.
