Konerko for Anderson??? WHIR

Postby jaysfreak13 » Sun May 29, 2011 11:33 am

So at the moment I'm trying to see if I can trade an OF(preferably Gardner) for a SP so I got this trade offer Konerko for Oakland SP Brett Anderson.

Here's my roster 12 Team 5X5

C Russell Martin NYY
1B/3B Kevin Youkilis BOS
2B Dan Uggla ATL
3B Alex Rodriguez NYY
OF Carl Crawford BOS
OF Michael Bourn HOU
OF Carlos Quentin CHW
UTL/1B Paul Konerko CHW
BN/OF Brett Gardner NYY
DL Shane Victorino PHI

SP Shaun Marcum MIL
SP Max Scherzer DET
RP Mark Melancon HOU
RP Chris Perez CLE
P Drew Storen WSH
P Kyle Lohse STL
P Johnny Cueto CIN
BN Eric Bedard SEA
BN Colby Lewis TEX
BN Anibal Sanchez FLA
BN John Danks CHW
DL Andrew Bailey OAK

I plan on dropping Danks once Bailey gets activated which should be anytime and while my pitching doesn't blow people away its solid enough to get me through and my hitting is deep enough to get me through and I have been generally winning Wins, Ks and Saves all year.

My gut tells me to reject it keep trying to trade and OF for a SP the reason I would like to do this is I have Victorino coming off the DL and with Gardner playing great the past month I don't want to drop him just for nothing.

Not a good trade for you. If you make a move at pitching, you need a guy that will help you with strikeouts. I don't see that roster holding up all season. Go for an under-appreciated guy like Bud Norris.

I don't know why people sell Konerko so low, I guess because he's the quietest top 30 player, in my opinion, out there. If I had Anderson I would jump all over this trade. Konerko should be worth a lot more then that.

I agree with above. Try for Hanson.

I think that if you are going to go after pitching, then I'd aim a little higher than Anderson. I agree that someone like Hanson is a much better idea.

Do the deal. You need the pitching help.
Could use some help at viewtopic.php?f=26&t=431510

Thanks all you guys I ended up rejecting the deal I'm still going to try to deal an OF for a SP or if I'm dealing Konerko I'm going to aim higher and I dropped Danks to activate Bailey off my DL.
