Arroyo/Gordon FOR Morton/Joyce (WHIR)

Postby BUCCOFAN » Fri May 20, 2011 12:59 pm

I am in a deep 15 team league.....deep rosters, Is this a deal I should look at proposing, and seeing if he will bite on two guys that are surging right now, and might continue with there success? Really like Charlie Morton of late, sure he is a Bucco, but he did come from pitching rich Braves organization and altered his deliver and has looked dynamite. Also have been a baker of Joyce who is finally getting playing time.

OF - M.Joyce $1 (2) (only has 1 year left at that terrific value)
P - C.Morton $3 (1) (two years left at that salary)

OF - A.Gordon $1 (1) (has 2 years left at that salary)
P - B.Arroyo $3 (1) (has 2 years left at that salary)

I'm pretty high on Morton as well, and I consider Gordon more or less worthless the rest of the way (I've been trying to unload him for weeks in my league with NO takers). Joyce could go either way, but I'd say swing for the fences with him because you know what you're getting with Arroyo (read: not much). I'd say you're getting the two better players going forward, and Gordon's value wontt remain high much longer.

joyce is hot right now but he's still just a platoon player. i dig the morton story but is his upside any better than what arroyo has done the past 2 years (140 Ks, 3.5-4 ERA 1.1-1.3 whip, 15-17 W)?

i know it seems crazy but i like both of your guys better over the long haul. i would stand pat. the only way you do this trade is if you think you can flip joyce and morton to someone else who loves overpaying for hot players.

help w mine? viewtopic.php?t=431133
