sooo I'm thinking of offering Heyward for JJ. Both are on the DL with shoulder troubles. The other guy has a so-so outfield (Abreu/Damon/Beltran) and crazy pitching depth (Lincecum, JJ, Cain, Hanson, and then Chacin/Cueto/Drabek at the back end). I've been doing well so far in pitching, but with Carp being terrible and Weaver slumping pretty bad, I feel like I could use an ace-quality pitcher.
12 team H2H yahoo league (I'm in 4th right now, other guy is in 2nd)
C: Alex Avila 1B: Paul Konerko 2B: Rickie Weeks 3B: Kevin Youkilis SS: Hanley Ramirez OF: Jose Bautista OF: Mike Stanton OF: Logan Morrison UTIL: David Ortiz BN: Kelly Johnson BN: Rajai Davis BN: Jason Heyward (DL)
SP: Jered Weaver SP: Chris Carpenter RP: Matt Capps RP: Kyle Farnsworth P: Fernando Salas P: Gio Gonzalez P: Tim Hudson P: Jonathan Sanchez BN: Wandy Rodriguez BN: Ian Kennedy DL: Brad Lidge
basically it comes down to, what can I expect from LoMo and if that will let me afford to give up Heyward. and also if JJ can come back healthy. also, I could pick up Tabata as a FA if I needed another OF.
josh johnson is gonna miss his next two starts jayson heyward is gonna miss about the same amount of time
yes lomo is real i live in florida and watch there games most nights. He will slump at some point because he is young but hes a real hitter. they have been batting him in the 3 hole with gabby behind him and hanley infront of him
only thing i dont like is you would have lomo and stanton everynight in ur starting lineup
another thought im having is j weave tim hud gio john sanchez wandy rod is a nice lineup plus if carpenter has a nice second half a normal carpenter second half then ur pitching is super nice and you can afford to wait on j hey and that could be the offense to put you over the top
Excellent deal if he will take it, but I see no reason why he would. JJ is top 10 when healthy, Heyward is no where near that by any stretch. Go ahead and try but be prepared to be rejected, harshly. Honestly, I think the offer is an insult, but stranger things have happened. If he rejects, try adding a marginal pitcher from you (Wandy/Hudson) and a similar outfielder from his team, to even things out a bit.
I agree with the above poster. If you can get the other owner to do this, go for it, but I just dont see anyone jumping on that. JJ is one of the best pitchers in the league, Heyward isnt even a top ten OF when healthy. He will be, but not yet, and since I see no indication of this being a keeper league, I see no reason to think anyone would accept this. In fact, if someone offered me that I probably wouldnt take any of their forthcoming trade propositions seriously.
I'm pretty much with the consensus here... if that guy has any sense of rationality, than he will decline. For you, that means there is no bad side to making the offer.... but, I don't see this trade working out well if he is realistic... It's one thing to trade power for speed, etc. but pitching for hitting is just plain messy.
