Trade Berkman? WHIR

Postby afern401 » Mon May 09, 2011 5:10 pm

Am I crazy for thinking I should sell high on Berkman? He is on pace for a monster year, can he keep it up?

I would sell high if you can get good return because St. Louis has some sweltering summers and I think his knees are gonna feel the wear in the outfield at some point. But don't settle for too little...

Help me out?

I echo the sentiments of the others: sell high but don't sell yourself short. I think Berkman will probably finish with nice numbers but don't think he can keep up this pace. Playing in the OF every day is going to cause him some problems.

It's very possible that you put Berkman on the block but don't get a good enough offer for him. Be picky and make sure you're getting a very solid player in return, otherwise hang onto him and get what you can out of him.

Help?

This is exactly right. Plus, be mindful of the fact that at his age, injury is a bigger possibility. Sell if you can get third round value or higher.

I've always liked Berkman, but I would sell him while you can. I think he'll end up with good numbers at the end of the season, but I can see him cooling off quite a bit. Think Raul Ibanez from a couple of seasons ago. He started off smoking hot, then cooled big time, but he still ended up with good numbers. Obviously, I think Berkman is better than Ibanez, but I see some similarities in their respective streaks.

Thanks for your help with mine.
