Buy low on Crawford? (whir)

Postby massespub » Fri May 13, 2011 9:47 pm

my: Chris B. Young and Michael Bourn
for his: Carl Crawford

10 team, yahoo, 5x5, keeper (but for the purposes of the players in this trade the keeper element is irrelevant). I'm in first in SB right now but it's pretty close at the top so trading Bourn might hurt a bit. The only offensive category I'm suffering in is avg. I'm leaning towards doing the trade but would appreciate a second opinion.

Here's my team:

c - m montero
1 - pujols
2 - cano
3 - zimmerman (on the DL)
ss - desmond
of - victorino
of - bruce
of - c young
util - fielder
util - bourn
bn - gordon (filling in for zimm)
bn - lowrie
bn - moreland

sp - verlander
sp - hamels
sp - hanson
sp - scherzer
sp - kuroda
rp - madson
rp - c perez
bn - padilla
bn - norris
bn - beachy

With Lowrie on the bench and Zimmerman coming back eventually, I like the 2:1 deal here. You are trading gangster speed for an all-around guy, helping your average a ton(hopefully) and maximizing your roster spots. Nice looking deal.

Thanks for the help. I'd do this deal, as it looks like Crawford is finally coming around. However, I worry that you need AVG., and he just isn't hitting for AVG. now. But all evidence points to the fact that he will improve that greatly.

yes.....in a heart-beat.....don't even think about it....do it

Crawford is an elite player.....at the end of the year he is going to play to the numbers on the back of his card......never pass up the chance to pick up this type of player for 2 second-tier players.


Help with mine?
