I just got offered a monster trade. (WHIR)

Postby Choptoberfest » Mon May 30, 2011 2:08 pm

12 Team, Yahoo, 5x5 H2H

My Team:

C: Brian McCann
1B: Miguel Cabrera
2B: Robinson Cano
3B: Neil Walker
SS: Alex Gonzalez
OF: Chris Young
OF: Mike Stanton
OF: Matt Joyce
UTIL: Chipper Jones
UTIL: Coco Crisp

BN: Ian Desmond
BN: Jason Heyward (DL)
DL: Ike Davis

SP: James Shields
SP: Ryan Vogelsong
RP: Craig Kimbrel
RP: Francisco Cordero
P: Justin Verlander
P: Colby Lewis
P: Zach Britton
P: Jonathon Sanchez
BN: CJ Wilson
BN: Josh Johnson (DL)
BN: Brandon Beachy (DL)

I got offered the following trade:

I get: Pujols, Ichiro, Soto, Tim Hudson

I give up: McCann, Davis, Verlander, Johnson

I'm currently in first place in the league, so I'm reluctant to make any trade that big, but I always have to take a second look when Pujols is involved. But, I am also leading the league in R, HR, RBI and I just added Crisp to shore up my SB's, I don't know if I need the bats. I am also close to the top in all of my pitching categories (except for Saves), so I don't really want to mess with that either.

So after looking at the trade further, I'm going to have to reject it. Am I making the right decision?

Thanks for your help with mine. Yeah, I don't think you need Pujols, too big a hit to take in your pitching to consider it.

Nope..... You're giving up the best catcher, in a shallow position, two aces, and a good hitter with power in Davis. I see no reason to give up all that just to get Pujols.

I don't see any reason to make this trade you would be giving up some monster starters for a guy that hasn't been too productive this year.

I would do that in a heart beat. Cabrera and Pujols on the same team, are you kidding me?

You can find a serviceable catcher that doesn't have as big of a name and can acquire free agent pitching.

I would do that in a freaking heartbeat.

Plus you are still keeping Shields who has been better than the other two.

Do it.

If you need replacement catchers look into Jonathan Lucroy, Chris Iannetta, Yadier Molina, etc. I don't like that you give up so much pitching for that but it's up to you.

After getting over the sticker shock of Pujols you can see you are giving up a bit too much. You'd be giving up the better catcher and pitching and getting Pujols doesn't make up for that.

A little help?
